ALLEGED CRUELTY TO PIGS AT PEMBROKE. At Cardiff Police-court on Friday (before Mr T. W. Lewie, stipendiary, and Sir Morgan Morgan) John Sheen, of Kilgetty, and Joseph Roberts, of Haverfordwest, pig dealers, were charged with cruelly ill-treating a number of pigs by over-crowd- ,iqg them in a railway truck. Mr Blake appeared ■for the R.S.P.C.A., and Mr George David defended —Mr Blake said that on the 25th ult. the defendants over-crowded 48 pigs in a railway truck at Pem- broke. The truck was only capable of properly holding 45, upon loading which number they were warned by Inspector Clarke, R.S.P.C.A. Defen- dants afterwards put three more in, and when the pigs arrived at Cardiff one was found to be dead. —Mr David said that it was a monstrous thing that this case should have been brought before the Cardiff court, inasmuch as the whole of the wit- nesses were at Pembroke, where the defendants lived.—The Stipendiary said that the actual cruelty would occur in putting the pigs into the trucks, and that was done at Pembroke. The Cardiff court was sufficiently burdened with work without trying Pembroke cases there.—Mr Blake contended that the case could be heard at Cardiff, because the cruelty was continuous until the pigs arrived at Cardiff. It could be heard at any place through which the carriage passed.—The Stipendiary: There is one place where it will not be heard. I am not going to hear it.—Mr David applied for costs, and these were granted.—Mr Blake asked for a case, Ibut the application was refused.
