A charge against a British postman who kicked a Yorkshire terrier has been dropped because of the postman's heart problems. The dog suffered a fractured skull and was put down. The postman, Billy Ace from Swansea, claims the dog had bitten him. The Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals decided to drop the case, despite believing that Ace was guilty of causing unnecessary suffering.
