Tongue v Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals and another

Bailment – Bailment for reward. A relationship of bailment had not arisen between the first respondent RSPCA and the appellant, T, when T had agreed to let the RSPCA enter land to care for the cattle there, following T's convictions for causing unnecessary suffering to the cattle. Consequently, the RSPCA had not come to owe T a duty to take care in respect of the preservation of the cattle, and it had not had a correlative right to recover expenses incurred from T.
