From: Jodie Hirst

10 March 2012

Dear West Yorkshire Police,

Please could you provide me with the following information.

I would like to know, collectively, how many people living in the
towns of Castleford, Pontefract,Knottingley, Featherstone and
Normanton have been arrested for cruelty to animals between January
2010 and March 2012?

From this, I would then like the figure broken down in to the
following:

1) How many of those people were cautioned and not charged?

2)How many of those people were formally charged?

3)How many received prison sentences?

4) Of those people who received prison sentences, what was the
longest sentence given and served?

5)How many were banned from owning pets ever again?

If you could put the figures next to each question I would be very
grateful.

Many thanks in advance for your assistance in this matter.

Yours faithfully,

Jodie Hirst
