    There are numerous thread about saving bruce at the moment, its very heart breaking and stirred up lots interest.

    Is there anyway we could have a sticky or a seperate section ( i think it merits it) and all the current threads regarding bruce pulled together in the section/sticky, then we can all see the latest updates on this poor dog




    thank you :) :) :)

    "Why have the USPCA failed to comment on Bruce?

    Over the last few weeks many organisations across the world have spoken up in defence of Bruce, a good dog, currently being held by the authorities in Northern Ireland. Emails have been sent in their thousands and every single organisation and a large number of MLP's have replied, even if its a basic aknowledgment of the emails recieved.

    Except for the USPCA.

    The USPCA is the Ulster Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. They are the main animal welfare body in Northern Ireland. Yet they have said nothing at all regarding the horrific condition Bruce was photograhed in. Bruce, we are told, is now in better condition however no one who claims to be protecting the welfare of animals could expect us to allow this silence and lack of action to continue.

    When you visit the USPCA website the first thing that stands out is a clip promoting the Five Freedoms. The Five freedoms are :

    Freedom from hunger and thirst.

    Freedom from discomfort

    Freedom from pain, injury and disease.

    Freedom to express normal behaviour

    Freedom from fear and distress.

    Yet with Bruce, the USPCA keeps up a wall of silence.

    Please email the USPCA again and ask them for their position on the seizure of dogs whose only crime is in their physical appearance.

    Why is no action seemingly being taken against those who failed to ensure Bruce freedom from pain, injury and disease?

    How many other dogs are currently being held in Northern Ireland?

    How many of those dogs have died while in the "care" of the authorities?

    Who is monitoring the welfare of all dogs held?

    When will independent investigation be carried out on ALL kennels holding dogs in Northern Ireland and when will the outcomes of those investigations be published?

    Northern Ireland, the World is still watching and will continue to speak out until YOU take action to protect the dogs!

    Email the USPCA again, please.

    Enquiries@uspca.co.uk"

    Here is the latest news on Bruce ...

    "From DDAWatch
    My understanding, which is absolutely fallible, is that Tuesday's hearing will just be for the judge to explain the reasoning behind her decision and for the legal points on which an appeal is sought to be laid out."
