Woman pleads guilty to an­i­mal cru­elty

The Hamilton Spectator - - CANADA & WORLD -

On­tario’s an­i­mal wel­fare watch­dog says a woman from Huron County has pleaded guilty to an­i­mal cru­elty af­ter an in­ves­ti­ga­tion in­volv­ing 60 an­i­mals on her prop­erty about 50 kilo­me­tres east of Goderich. OSPCA in­ves­ti­ga­tors found 22 cats liv­ing in un­san­i­tary con­di­tions in sev­eral small cages and 21 dogs in dirty cages and ken­nels with­out food or wa­ter. They also found two goats in a shed with­out win­dows, light­ing, food or wa­ter, 12 chick­ens in a coop with­out food and three ex­otic birds and a rab­bit in un­san­i­tary con­di­tions. The agency says 53-year-old Gina Platt was sen­tenced to two years’ pro­ba­tion and a five-year pro­hi­bi­tion that lim­its the num­ber of species and num­ber of an­i­mals she can own.
