A WOMAN has been charged with breaching a duty of care towards an animal.
Between May 4 and 8 this year Whitsunday police investigated allegations that a dog was being kept in a cage inside the back of a van at a private residence at Cannonvale. Officers spoke to the animal’s owner about the incident.
When police returned to the Woomera Avenue address days later the dog was still being held in the back of the van.
As a result a 49-year-old Cannonvale resident was charged and will appear in the Proserpine Magistrate’s Court on May 25.
