RSPCA chief faces cruelty claims

Herald Sun, dec 19, 2011

THE national head of the RSPCA will appear in court today over allegations of animal cruelty.

RSPCA president Dr Peter Wright was absent from a media announcement yesterday that the NSW Government was contributing $7.5 million towards refurbishing the organisation’s Yagoona animal shelter, in Sydney’s southwest.

Media were told Dr Wright was absent because of a family illness before NSW Premier Barry O’Farrell fielded questions about his court appearance.

“The rules apply to everybody. The laws apply equally and the courts get to determine whether or not charges are proven,” Mr O’Farrell said when asked about the matter.
