Increasing number of pets being 'left to die', say RSPCA


The number of convictions for animal neglect and cruelty in cases brought by the RSPCA rose by a third in England and Wales in 2012, says a report by the charity.

The annual prosecutions report shows offences rose from 3,114 in 2011 to 4,168 in 2012.

Jeremy Cooke reports from an RSPCA centre which has just rescued four abandoned kittens.
