Ferret attack girl banned
A FERRET owner who punched her pet before throwing it to the ground has been banned from keeping animals.
Natalie Dendry was warned by a judge this was her “last chance” to avoid prison as she was sentenced for the vile animal attack.
The 39- year- old denied causing unnecessary suffering to a protected animal and being drunk and disorderly but was found guilty by magistrates.
The ferret, named Posh Spice, was thrown into the air by Dendry who repeatedly punched it.
When the ferret tried to escape, she caught it and attacked it again.
She was given an unlimited ban on keeping animals which lasts for at least two years, after which she would need to apply to a court to have the ban lifted.
She was also given a 12- month community order to work with probation on her drug and alcohol issues.
