Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

AF­TER re­ceiv­ing mul­ti­ple com­plaints of an­i­mal ne­glect, po­lice of­fi­cers and RSPCA in­ves­ti­ga­tors vis­ited a Goomeri home on June 3.

A 37-year-old Goomeri man was sub­se­quently charged with an­i­mal ne­glect.

Of­fi­cers spoke to the Goomeri man re­gard­ing the re­ports and it’s al­leged they saw mul­ti­ple dogs liv­ing at the prop­erty in a con­fined space with lit­tle room to move, and with­out access to wa­ter.

On ad­vice from an RSPCA in­spec­tor, po­lice charged the man for breach­ing duty of care un­der the An­i­mal Care and Pro­tec­tion Act.

The man will ap­pear in the Mur­gon Mag­is­trates Court on Septem­ber 8.

If you be­lieve an an­i­mal is at risk, be­ing poorly treated, ne­glected or aban­doned, please re­port the mat­ter to the RSPCA.
