Drop in animal cruelty offences across Lincolnshire

But there's still over 3000 investigations carried out across the county.

Stats released this morning show 15 people were convicted of animal cruelty offences in Lincolnshire last year - despite over 3000 investigations being carried out by the RSPCA.

A man from the Boston area was convicted after his 8 week old kitten had to be put to sleep - because their eyes were so badly damaged after he'd tried to wash them with saltwater rather than take her to the vet.

Inspectors says on that occasion they got a prosecution - but it isn't always the answer.
