A heartless drunk who left a rabbit traumatised and cowering in fear after torching his hutch was jailed today.

Katey Barber, who set the rabbit's home alight after drinking seven cans of lager, was condemned as 'despicable' in court and handed a three-month sentence.


The 22-year-old had been burning clothes belonging to her mother's partner in the garden before turning her attention to the animal.

She prodded the rabbit called Bunny with a stick before throwing a burning piece of paper into the hutch and shutting the door.

When friends and family tried to intervene Barber swore at them and locked them inside the house.


She was then seen laughing and said: 'Look, the rabbit's running around on fire,' before eventually pouring water on the animal to put out the flames.

At Stockport Magistrates Court, Barber had admitted causing unnecessary suffering to a protected animal but argued the fire started by accident.

JP Dorothy Manton said she was a liar and told her: 'This was a despicable revenge attack on a poor defenceless animal which has caused you no harm.

'It was pre-mediated and deliberate and you chose to ignore its suffering. Custody is the only option to deter such offenders as yourself and to protect animals and their owners.


She added: 'You have lied so many times I don't believe anything you say. You deliberately set fire to that rabbit hutch to cause unnecessary suffering to that animal.'

Barber, from Wythenshawe, Greater Manchester, was also banned from keeping animals for life.



The attack happened while she was staying at her mother's home in Cheadle Heath, Stockport.

Her mother and her boyfriend were away on holiday with Barber's sister, Rachel, the rabbit's owner.


Dominic Geelan, prosecuting, said two children were asleep upstairs when the attack began.


After burning her mother's partner's clothes 'in a round drum, pouring turps on them and setting them alight', Barber set the hutch on fire, Mr Geelan said.

When others tried to stop her they were 'met with expletives', he added.

Bunny was terrified, huddled at the side of the charred hutch with its fur scorched and badly blistered.

Vets who examined him said he could be permanently scarred by the attack, which happened last September.


He may need to have part of one ear amputated and has been left terrified of any human contact.

In a victim impact statement read to the court, Barber's sister Rachel said: 'I'm scared of what my sister may do.


'She was blaming my mum and her partner for leaving the children and I'm angry about what's happened. I can't afford the vets bill and can't afford to replace the hutch.'

Barber's lawyer, Neville Warburton, said she had been through 'absolute horrors' since her case emerged and just wanted to move on.

The 22-year-old was smuggled into court by two police minders because of fears she might be attacked by angry protestors.

None turned up for the sentencing but she was still sneaked into the building through a side entrance by two officers.


Mark Wallace, Campaign Director of the TaxPayers' Alliance, said: 'It is ridiculous to give this woman police protection.

'She committed a disgusting crime and doesn't deserve special treatment. Given that there weren't even any protesters there, this was a costly misjudgement that proved totally unnecessary.'
