In the case of RSPCA v Barnfield, Sumner and Heythrop, District Judge Pattinson should not have questioned the amount of money these convictions cost.
The amount of work which will have been invested in this result will have exceeded all bounds. You cannot survive the process on fresh air alone.
This was a massive ask. Everyone involved deserves the most generous credit for an awesome job done, and there will be many who came together to make this happen. Thank heavens that they did. Wildlife protection via the Hunting Act is stronger for it.
You cannot put a price on justice. We should all take heart.
