RSPCA failed to come out after man threatened to kill stray cat

RSPCA would not rescue this cat when he was threatened by a man

Not much to say here except that the RSPCA seem to be perpetually in trouble due to making poor decisions. They have been heavily criticised for bringing too many prosections as a means to promote themselves and to try and deter animal abusers. It failed as did the prosecutions. The RSCPA does seem to be reluctant to come out to rescue animals. I recall telephoning them when a duck landed in a carpark (parking lot) thinking it was water and smashed into a car damaging it’s eye. They refused to come out. I sense a reluctance to do the bread and butter work of animal rescue and welfare. This cat needed assistance; rescuing. But nada from the RSPCA.
