Men jailed for cruelty against horses in one of 'worst cases encountered'

A father and son have been jailed for animal cruelty offences in what the judge called "one of the worst" he had ever encountered.

Conor McAleenan, 28, was sentenced to 14 months and Robert, 55, for nine months.

The two men of Lisnevenagh Road, Antrim, will serve half the sentence in custody and half on licence.
