According to the summons the rabbit was not treated for an eye condition, the goat for lameness, the duck had an injured eye and the dove a poor body condition.

And what's the 'failing to prevent a duck from receiving an injury' all about? Have they managed to institute H for animals, now? If a hedgehog trips over in my garden, am I liable?.

I cannot feel though that the RSPCA is one of those oxymorons in that it acalades royal patronidge yet, is it not the royals that administer animal cruelty through hunting, shooting and other past times that really do not fit in with what any normal thinking person would regard as animal welfare.

It is very sad that the animals were suffering in any way but there is a moot point here about intentions and obligations. We heard earlier that the RSPCA would prefer to put down an injured animal rather than try to save it. This couple on the other hand appear to be trying to sustain life although may not be going about it the right way.

It added the sanctuary was not closed and would continue fundraising, however, it is not taking in any more sick animals.

There are four other offences, including keeping a fox and fox cub in unsuitable conditions, failing to prevent a duck from receiving an injury, and failing to give a wood pigeon adequate food andThe hen and cockerel were said to be suffering from a scaly leg condition, while the guinea pigs were said to not have been treated for a skin disease.

If these allegations are true then i doubt very much that this couple have intended to do any harm to these animals after all they have done this for 30 years, if anything maybe the powers that be should have thought about giving advice and training to this couple first rather than going down the prosecution route.

A statement released on the sanctuary's website said: "We vehemently deny and refute allegations made."

RSPCA Essex South Southend branch is a local independent charity financing rescue, treatment, boarding and arranging rehoming of pets (not wildlife) rescued by RSPCA Inspectors in our area. RSPCA branches are all independent of the national organisation and are self funding, not funded by RSPCA HQ. Their role is to take on responsiblity for pets rescued locally by the RSPCA. Policy is never to put a healthy animal to sleep. Vet and boarding bills in our area for pets alone cost almost a quarter of a million pounds a year and it is incredibly difficult to raise this money locally; even with the RSPCA brand. Please look out for the Emergency Appeal to enable the branch to continue with its increasing workload in the recession and also the Puss n Boots Day on 10th December.

The RSPCA won't tough the "gypo camps" for two reasons. Firstly, they are a minority group and it is just not British to do something like that regardless of the complaint or crime.
