Seems ridiculous.

Highly ridiculous. I wonder why full costs were not awarded.

Perhaps because it was a hunt

No the problem lies with the courts did you see this post

The Rspca and the police are wasting their time if the courts think this is justice

There do need to be stronger sentences as a deterrent to scum like this!

Totally disproportionate, I agree.
But do nothing?

No to be fair the Rspca and the police did their job but the fine and the sentence are a bad joke.

Perhaps the bigger question should be not who should prosecute, but why judges are being totally ridiculous when sentencing?

The Judiciary is obviously at fault, it falls within their powers to give longer custodial sentences and far bigger fines.
The answer is surely not to give the RSPCA powers of arrest (which would mean recruiting a much diferent type of Inspector) but to consistently campaign for a harder line to be taken with offenders.

No disagreement with that.
The only positive thing is that the perpetrators might be discouraged from doing it again.

Exactly, lay the blame at the right feet and let the Rspca get back to what they do best.
