Beast ban for cruelty.

A CROFTER was banned from keeping animals for 10 years yesterday after admitting cruelty crimes.

Inspectors found nearly 30 dead sheep and two calves buried in cow dung at Colin Robertson's Shetland croft.

Lerwick sheriff court heard they also found a flock of hens feeding off a sheep's carcass, a ram, and three puppies in a crate all inside his home.

Robertson, 47, of Walls, was given 200 hours community service. Co-accused Tommy Jamieson, 43, admitted cruelty charges involving ponies. His sentence was deferred.
