DOG breeder James ­Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge Kate’s brother, is pressing for tougher animal cruelty penalties.

James hit out after a dog owner tied a stone to their pet’s lead and threw her into water to drown.

A passer-by jumped in to save the struggling mutt.

The owner admitted causing suffering and was fined £80.

James, 33, said: “I cannot fathom how anyone could do this to their own dog.

"This is shocking. There are harsher fines for spitting in the street.”

He pledged to “petition for change”.

James has spent much of the past lockdown at the Glen Affric estate in Inverness-shire in the Scottish Highlands.

He is a host for parties there.
