Birkenhead greyhound trainer Ian Street admits animal cruelty charges


A GREYHOUND racing trainer faces jail after inflicting “terrible suffering” on nearly 30 dogs.

Ian Street, 49, had 29 greyhounds confiscated when his premises were raided last April.


Of those, eleven were in such a state that animal welfare charges were brought against him by Wirral Council.

Street, of Bedford Avenue, Birkenhead, leant on the dock at Wirral Magistrate’s Court as the animals’ misery was detailed yesterday.

Kenneth Abraham, prosecuting, described the scene at Hillcroft Farm, Frankby Road, Frankby, where the dogs were kept.

He told the court: “A greyhound called Dancer had gingivitis and scabs on her feet.

“Tex had complete hair loss on his back half and scabs on his ears.

“Sal had thinning hair and redness to her skin.

“The vet who examined the dogs confirmed these were all illnesses that would have been spotted by a responsible dog owner who would have sought appropriate advice.”

After Street admitted failing to protect the animals from pain, suffering, injury and disease, chairwoman of the bench Linda Tragen warned him: “It is up to you to co-operate with the probation service on a pre-sentence report which may include a community penalty or indeed custody.”

He was also ordered not to give away any animals he was keeping at other properties and to make them available for inspection.

Ann Downey, enforcement officer with Wirral Council environmental health team, said: "This was a particularly difficult case to investigate because of the number of animals involved and the level of suffering we witnessed.

"We are pleased that the hard work that had gone into preparing and presenting the evidence has paid off with the guilty plea.

"The conditions in which these greyhounds were kept were simply not acceptable and it's clear that a number of them suffered terribly as a result of his neglect.

"Mercifully all of the dogs have now fully recovered and have all found new homes as a result of the efforts of Greyhound Rescue West of England, whose hard work and assistance has been invaluable throughout."

Street’s sentencing was adjourned until February 15.

I say bring back the dog licence and make it so that the dogs can be checked at any time!! That way, only people who are willing to pay for one will be able to have them.

People like him make me sick to my stomach and so mad somad

4 months suspended....FOR FOOKS SAKE...why didnt the judge just shake his fooking hand and appologise for inconveniencing the guy!!!!!
WE (WIKI WE!!) should all boycott Argyle Taxis till hes sacked!!
Like the little fook in Liverpool who filmed dogs ripping a caged Baby fox apart and a cat that he bravely held down with his foot!! Only got 4 months in holiday camp for that!!!
I say smear his balls (if he has any!!) with gravy and hold him down, while the dogs he so fondly likes watching murder defenseless animals, feast on his small nads!! MY way to stop the chav cock lowlifes interbreeding!!! somad

I know Ian from years ago, though he's not a mate just someone i know.
He's always had greyhounds as far as i can remember.

And boycotting a Taxi firm wont matter, he would just go to another.
