Two farm workers have been sentenced for cruelty to pigs in Norfolk.
Geoffrey Towell, 54, and James Dove, 27, were working at Harling Farm, East Harling, when they were secretly filmed being cruel to sows and piglets.
Towell, of East Harling, was jailed for 18 weeks. Dove, of Wymondham, received an eight-week jail term, suspended for a year, at Norwich Magistrates’ Court.
District Judge Veits said it was among the worst cases of deliberate cruelty he had seen.
It was exposed by a member of the animal rights group Animal Equality, which prompted the RSPCA to visit the farm on 10 February.
