A woman has been banned from owning dogs for life by a Queensland court after she pleaded guilty to four animal cruelty offences.
A Queensland woman has been banned from owning dogs for life after she starved two to death.
In the Ipswich Magistrates Court on Wednesday, Debra Louise Pridmore, 45, was also sentenced two months imprisonment, wholly suspended for 18 months.
She pleaded guilty to four animal cruelty offences after the withered bodies of two dogs were found in a greenhouse at her home in June 2013.
Autopsies showed the dogs had died from extreme malnourishment and dehydration.
They also had severe hookworms.
RSPCA Queensland spokesman Michael Beatty welcomed the sentence.
“Looking at past precedents, this has been a good result,” he said in a statement.
