USPCA acts on neglect tip-off

Animal Welfare / Film 02

AFTER a tip-off the USPCA had been watching a small unofficial bird sanctuary for months.

They had seen enough to be concerned about issues of neglect and cruelty to organise an uannounced search of the premises in Co Antrim.

So along with officers from the PSNI and the USPCA’s vet, David Bailey, we joined USPCA staff, including chief executive Stephen Philpott, for a tour of the property.

With the USPCA and PSNI leading the way, The Detail followed.
