Woman banned from keeping animals for life after she left her dog to starve to death



A woman identified as Katie Louise Oldridge, has been banned from keeping animals for life after she left her Staffordshire bull terrier to starve to death in her home.



The dog was found lying dead next to an empty tin of food at her kitchen in Meadowbank Road, Hull, covered in a large amount of dried out faeces.



Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Inspector, Jilly Dickinson who led the investigation, said as the dog's body was placed in an RSPCA evidence bag, a heap of live maggots dropped from his rotting head.




‘The kitchen door had a baby gate in the frame.

‘I found a dog food tin on the kitchen worktop, which contained mouldy remains of food in the bottom of it, and an empty box of dog treats, which appeared to contain faeces.

‘There was an overwhelming smell of faeces and decomposing flesh in the property.’







A Hull Magistrates’ Court heard how the woman left a bowl of water for the dog. However no food was found within the dog's reach as Oldridge abandoned him between April 10 and May 14 last year.Latest Post
