Arrest warrant for Rhondda man guilty of animal cruelty

An arrest warrant has been issued for a man convicted of animal cruelty, after he failed to appear for sentence.

Eric Buckley, 56, did not attend Pontypridd magistrates court on Friday.

Last month Buckley and his wife Doreen, 46, were convicted of animal cruelty, including keeping a pony, goats and geese in the cellar of their home.

An RSPCA inspector said it was "beyond anything" she had seen before.
