Alan Healy, in the Evening Echo, in Cork, reports that a man and a woman were separately convicted for animal welfare offences last week.
The woman was fined €100, while the man was fined €200 and ordered to give the ISPCA an additional €200.
Mr Healy reported:
On January 17, ISPCA Inspector Lisa O’Donovan visited the woman’s property in response to a call to the ISPCA Helpline.
She seized a collie pup, approximately five months old, tied to an oil tank with no shelter [pictured above]…A vet later described the pup as “severely underweight”.
