RSPCA inspector Rachel Hayward, said: “It’s horrendous to think that he was stabbed to death in such a brutal attack.

“Bishop had no injuries so we disputed his claims he had been attacked by General.

“He later admitted he stabbed the dog in anger and said at the time General wasn’t attacking him as he had first claimed.”

Sentencing: 18 weeks in prison, suspended for two years; 250 hours of community service; £865 in costs. Lifetime disqualification order on all animals.
