Lifetime ban for illegal puppy trader

A man who caused the unnecessary suffering of dogs in his care has been given a lifetime ban on keeping animals and a £2,600 fine.

Christopher Gorman, 54, was found guilty of allowing the death of a puppy in his care and repeatedly striking dogs with a large piece of wood.

The offences happened at his home in Plains, North Lanarkshire, in June 2016.

The unlicensed pet shop owner's conviction follows a Scottish SPCA investigation.
