(2011) Liberal Democrat prospective candidate mike Dixon -JAILED FOR 16 WEEKS FOR BATTERING A CAT TO DEATH

Former candidate, who speaks out on crime and policing, imprisoned for 16 weeks

A PROSPECTIVE Liberal Democrat MP was jailed yesterday for bludgeoning his family cat to death with a walking stick.

Mike Dixon, 53, who has spoken out on crime and policing in the past, yelled: ‘I’m going to kill this cat’ while brandishing the stick and chasing it upstairs into a bedroom.

He then repeatedly struck black-and-white Tipsy in a ‘prolonged and awful attack’ while his family begged him to stop.

The animal, which had lived with the family for five years, died in agony after suffering for more than half an hour with ten broken bones and a skull fracture.

Kidderminster magistrates heard the prospective parliamentary candidate – who came third in Birmingham Northfield at the general election – ‘lost his temper’ after the cat apparently scratched one of his grandchildren last May.

Some time later, in what RSPCA officers described as a ‘calculated’ attack, he chased it into a bedroom and locked the door behind him before beating it with the stick.

Dixon, of Kidderminster, contacted the police to tell them what he had done and they passed the case on to the RSPCA, which brought the prosecution.
