Woman banned for life from owning pets
A WOMAN has been banned for life from owning pets after being convicted of neglect, and her husband was banned for 10 years from keeping all animals except fish.
In Beenleigh Magistrates Court yesterday, Sharon Damrow, 41, and Randyal Damrow, 33, pleaded guilty to 15 charges of failing to treat and feed their animals at their Park Ridge, Logan property. They were given two years probation.
Last November they were found guilty of multiple charges of animal neglect and sentenced to 12 months’ probation, and also handed a five-year ban from keeping animals.
After further RSPCA visits, they were issued with new charges. In one incident, detailed in court documents, seven chickens were pecked to death by other hens and their bodies left to rot in the pen.
