Despite allowing her dog to get into this state, callous Sally Wilkinson wasn’t jailed

Sally Wilkinson was banned from keeping animals for life after her dying dog was found in the worst state an RSPCA inspector had seen in her 17-year career.

Wilkinson pleaded guilty to two animal welfare offences when she appeared before Chesterfield Magistrates’ Court on Monday (12/11/2018).

Convicted dog abuser Sally Wilkinson from Blackwell, Alfreton

The court heard how her emaciated Rottweiler dog, ironically called Chunk, was so thin and had a chronic skin condition it was difficult to establish her breed.

Chunk was just half the weight she should have been – at only 23.4kgs when she should have been 42kgs – and an untreated skin condition also left her with no hair apart from around her paws and some on her back.

RSPCA inspector Helen Mead, who was sent to investigate, said it was the worst case of dog neglect she had seen in her 17-year career.

She told how she went to Wilkinson’s home on September 4, 2018, after the animal welfare charity received a call from a concerned member of the public.

She said: “I smelt the dog’s chronic skin condition when I went into the house, even though she was in another room. Then when I saw Chunk I was horrified as she was in an appalling state.

“She was elderly and emaciated with bones protruding and she had almost no hair due to the chronic skin condition which had been left untreated.

“The skin was crusted, scabby, bleeding and thickened and she was covered in fleas. She had sunken eyes with pus around them. I just knew instantly she was in a bad way and must have been suffering enormously.”

Inspector Mead was given consent to take Chunk to a vets who decided the kindest thing to do would be to put her to sleep.

The vet stated that 14yo Chunk would have suffered horrendously for a period of time, suffering from malnutrition for at least two months and from the chronic skin condition for at least four months.

The judge, in his summing up, stated it was “sustained, systemic neglect” and added “it beggars belief it was allowed to deteriorate to this point”.

Inspector Mead said: “The photographs show Chunk was in such an appalling state.

“I was so upset that things had got so bad there was nothing that could be done to help her other than end her suffering.

“I am in no doubt that this dog’s horrendous suffering could have been avoided if she was taken to a vet and treated when any problems first arose – it should never have got to this situation.”

Sentencing:
Eight-week jail sentence, suspended for two years. Fined £300 and ordered to pay a £75 victim surcharge. Lifetime ban on keeping animals.

    1. I’LL HELP YOU, SHE’S SCUM. GOD LIKE TO WIPE THAT SMILE OFF HER FACE. SO ANGRY. HOPE SHE STARVES TO DEATH AND ROTS IN HELL. SHE’S VILE AND JUSTICE IN THIS COUNTRY, WHEN ANIMALS HAVE BEEN ABUSED ETC IS A BLOODY FARCE. JUST BECAUSE ANIMALS HAVE NO VOICE, THE COURTS DON’T BOTHER TO GIVE PROPER PUNISHMENT TO THESE VILE OFFENDERS.

      1. I thoroughly agree with you the sentence should have been so much harder…she needs to suffer just like this poor innocent dog did. what an evil, heartless person she is and l hope karma gets her …

      2. I agree..I’m so disgusted that I can’t see through my tears..everyday I see this on fb..horrific acts that humans inflict on thier pets..makes me sick to my stomach..we need harsher laws everywhere in the world..I just want to torture and make this bitch suffer..she diserves a world of pain..hopefully the karma police will get her!!!!

  1. Why suspend the sentence, how is that going to make her see the error of her ways, anyone with half a brain could see the dog was suffering, and she must have watched this for far longer than 8 weeks. These ridiculous sentences are the reason people have no faith in the RSPCA or the justice system. She has walked away with nothing but a slap on the wrist, then you wonder why people take things into their own hands. Cruelty is never going to stop until you judges start handing out a sentence to fit the crime.

    1. My dog has a skin condition called Atopic Dermatitus I bet that is what her dog suffered from, but it can be kept at bay by the right diet, as its caused by allergies, right diet and on flare up antibiotics and steroids its a life time condition but like I said with the right diet can be kept at bay most of the time. I believe this person let this dog suffer all her life not just for 8 weeks. Hence, the life time ban and the is premeditated torture she enjoyed watching, or she would of gone to the PDSA or somewhere for help, or given her up to rescue.

    2. She doesn’t need prison to see the errors of her ways as she been seeing them for a very long time. People like her do not think or feel like decent people. They are void of all emotion.. shes a vile person that the world would be better for if she no longer existed. Animal cruelty shows the evilness of her whole being.

    3. I don’t think you can blame the R.S.P.A. When they were alerted about this poor 17 bloody old boy they acted.
      I blame the Judical FUCKING ARSEOLES. It’s that BITCH THAT NEEDS A GOOD SLAP.
      WHAT FUCKING DRUGS HAD THE JUDGE TAKEN TO ALLOW THIS THING BACK ON THE STREETS???
      Dogs and cats become family members.. would she have left an elderly family member like that ??? In my heart I think yes to that, so what would the sentence have been then ??
      SHE KNEEDS A FUCKING GOOD KICKING.
      and starved as well as actually injecting IT with AIDS or something far worse and left to die.
      YOU ARE NOTHING BUT A WASTE OF GOOD SPACE, GOOD AIR THAT SOMEONE ELSE COULD BE BREATHING
      YOUR AN ABSOLUTE
      BASTARD
      BITCH
      NASTY
      SPITEFUL
      CUNT.
      WHAT WENT THROUGH YOUR VILE MIND WHEN YOU COULD HEAR THIS POOR DOG CRYING ?????
      OR WAS YOU THAT MUCH OFF YOUR TITS OUT YOUR HEAD TO GIVE AN ACTUAL SHIT.
      BLOWN MONEY ON SHIT YOU SELFISH CUNT WHEN YOU SHOULD HAVE BEEN BUYING DOG FOOD AND GETTING THE APROAPITE ATTENTION THIS POOR DOG SO DESPERATELY NEEDED.
      BRING BACH HANGING BACK.
      ILL APPLY.

      REST IN PAINLESS PIECE CHUNK. BE SAFE IN THE KNOWLEDGE THAT YOULL BE HAVING NO MORE SUFFERING ST THIS BITCHES HANDS OR ANYONE ELSES.

    4. Rspca aren’t very good at all…just saw last year that a fox that was in a trap crying all night and then strung up on the front gate for all to see the next morning had no justice…Rspca did nothing .

  2. My goodness, such suffering and such pain, poor poor sweet dog, I just want to cry !!!
    And look at this very unplesant and horrific person grinning towards the camera, as if she was proud of something, my goodness !!!

  3. why wasnt she jailed? you cant blame the RSPCA they brought the case to court, its the idiot Judge who had the last word

  4. Sad vile piece of human garbage
    She disgusts me piece of s–t
    She should be in prison and get what’s coming to her
    I do not understand the wanton cruelty of poor Chunky
    I am fuming this case ought to reviewd she needs to go to prison.
    RIP Chunky

  5. Evil heartless b….h – what punishment is that as she clearly doesn’t care about animals. I hope KARMA comes soon!

  6. It makes me so sad and angry that defenceless animals have to suffer at the hands of cruel retards. Prison it should have been, and i so wish the same cruelty could be inflicted on them! They’re not fit to breath the same air

  7. Ugly puffy faced cow!To leave an elderly dog suffering like that whilst she’s been stuffing her hob!!!Hope she meets a very painful end.

  8. Very sad to see something like this so close to home! Only a £375 fine for such torture of an innocent creature too? I hope she gets what she deserves. I’ve also just found out that this piece of sh*t has children, poor souls. Evidently she can’t even look after a dog! Rest in peace Chunk, at least your suffering has finally ended.

  9. I hate people like her she belongs in jail I would love a dog but I’m out all day so be cruel to get one free I’m angry at the moment but karma will get her in the end
    I hope.

  10. What a heartless cow,animals have feelings just like humans I can see the sadness that poor dog has been through and her pain.why have animals if you can’t take care of them.dogs are beautiful caring and loving and devoted to there owners
    She must of felt so depressed and unloved
    My heart breaks,🐕🐾🐕🐾

  11. She should be locked up with a human aggressive dog to work out its issues, someone else said this and I wholeheartedly agree. It’s a horrific thing to do to any living creature and am appalling farce of a punishment. 🤬😖🤐

  12. Oh god that poor poor dog , looking at my dogs now asleep together good walk bellys full under their duvet they don’t ask for much if only the poor dog could talk,I’m lost for words the woman can’t be human it’s about time the courts delt out proper punishment to fit the crime, in cases like this she should receive a lethal injection with out any doubt, but because of the do gooders she will live unfortunately, RIP friend xx

  13. Anybody in England man enough to take that fucking bitch out, how can anybody do this to animals that look at you as their protectors and pack members , the fucking judge too should be held responsible. What she did to that animal is no different as if it was a child looking at you as being there for them, sincerely hope someone make her pay, the world can only be a better place then!

  14. She should have to go to prison and let them sort her out
    What a low life
    She will receive her karma big time
    What a scum bag
    My bloody is boiling

  15. Absolutely horrific end for a beautiful loyal animal there are no excuses for this appalling neglect even if she couldn’t afford the treatment she could’ve got help from the PDSA. The fact that she has ignored the issue and disgustingly allowed the animal to suffer in this way for an extended period of time is beyond anything I could comprehend and evil and without compassion! She could’ve sought help and or either given the dog up to ensure Chunk was cared for! She obviously hid that fact and has escaped with a measly fine! We pay that for our own dogs treatments and I’d pay it forever if it meant my dog didn’t suffer!
    The lifetime ban means bugger all she could move elsewhere and get more animals this isn’t monitored properly! Waste of court time and absolutely no justice for poor chunk. Can’t think of anything I wouldn’t want to do to this evil cruel waste of space oxygen thief and she has kids god help them. Rest in peace Chunk you’re better off now away from this evil scum who deserves to die as you did only then would she appreciate your pain . Sad so very sad😢and angry 😡

      1. Yeah, he is obviously some relation of Sally who knew about the situation which makes him just as bad! He’s gone all quiet now anyway.

    1. Do you know what happened? Please give us clue … as from where I’m standing and the rest of the world…there is no excuse good enough for putting a life, a living creature through this absolutely disgusting neglect !!
      What has this taught her children ???? They say those who abuse animals go on to become child abusers and the like . So please help us understand how this cruelty can be justified ?????

  16. She should be locked up and the key thrown away how could she do this I am so upset. I hope they keep there word she not aloud to keep any pet but how will they do this, no ID is checked when buying a pet????? More needs to be done

  17. Anyone who is “truly committed “ to this person getting justice should follow the path of least resistance…
    Get to know her, go out with her, date her, have a relationship with her, start doing some outdoor activities, maybe even international travel. Bring her to the USA, take her hiking in one of our many picturesque places. Then handcuff her, somewhere that is rarely traveled by anyone & not visible from the air, and leave her for dead 💀. As you leave, let her know that this is the justice that she skated around, but is now being imposed on her.
    Btw, there are plenty of National Parks and places within that this could be accomplished… Grand Canyon, Monument Valley, Death Valley, Grand Tetons, Yosemite, Yellowstone, etc

    Btw, for those of you who think this is a little extreme, think of what the actions & repercussions would be had that been an infant, a toddler….
    Would she STILL have only gotten 8weeks suspended sentence & £375 fine?? I hope not… I hope that special circumstances would have earned her a spot on the gallows (for the first time in quite a while)

  18. Poor dog hope chunk when u look down on that evil vile troll u pee on her for lettin u going like u did u run free now n have loads off fun my rottie will play with u at the rainbow bridge ❤❤🌈🌈R.I.P Chunk xx

  19. I hate people that are mean to animals I think they all need to go to jail and stay there until they rott. Animals do not deserve this. The need tlc and a good place to stay.

  20. I just makes me wonder, why? I mean she is obviously an ugly wench with probably very little going for her, but it was no fault of the dog! I just don’t understand how people can enjoy watching the innocent suffer, does it make them feel better? I’d love to personally ask her why, maybe I will get the chance as I live in a neighbouring village to Blackwell myself!

  21. Everybody saying she deserves a worse punishment, she has young kids and their dad works full time… I do agree the punishment should have been worse either way .. Cant believe me and my family one called her a friend ;(

    1. Surely neighbours and friends would’ve seen thus poor dog suffering … unless it was hidden away which makes it all the more of a crime .
      Her children will be next
