    James Knight Stratton, of Churton Heath Farm, admits animal cruelty
    A Cheshire farmer could be facing jail after ‘horrific’ scenes of animal cruelty were found on his property.
    James Knight Stratton, of Churton Heath Farm, Bruera, admitted 20 specimen charges of animal welfare offences at Chester Magistrates Court today (Friday).
    Cheshire West and Chester Animal Health and Welfare inspectors had been alerted to the Stratton’s rented Cold Harbour Farm in Hatton Heath after receiving an anonymous phone call from a concerned member of the public.
    When they arrived, they discovered scenes which they described as ‘the worst of its kind to ever be investigated by this authority’.
    Dozens of cattle carcasses in various states of decomposition were discovered around the farm, and some that were suffering from extreme malnutrition had to be immediately put down.
    Other living cattle were subsequently signed over to the authority, and a further six had to be humanely destroyed.
    Stratton, 49, pleaded guilty to all 20 charges, including causing unecessary suffering and failing to ensure the needs of an animal were met.
    On the farm’s website, Mr Stratton is described as someone who ‘comes from a farming background and has always wanted to run his own farm’.
    The case has been referred to Chester Crown Court where Stratton will be sentenced at a later date.
