Michael also wrote a blog on this subject, outlining in more detail his thoughts on the animal cruelty. For instance despite rising numbers of reported offences in South Yorkshire, from 4,666 in 2015 to 4,806 in 2016, Michael has suggested this is cause for optimism, as fewer people are content to stand by and let this crime continue.
