On March 17th 2009, greyhound owners Robert and John Freeman were privately prosecuted by the RSPCA in a criminal court and found guilty of causing unnecessary suffering to greyhounds.
The court heard how a tip-off from a concerned member of the pubic had alerted the NGRC in February to the appalling conditions the greyhounds were kept in at Woodside kennels, Colchester Essex.
The dogs were left in cages, covered in urine and excrement and without food or water or light for days causing some of them to bite at the bars in frustration and walk round in circles constantly.
