Downham Woman Fined After Starving Dog Found

A Downham woman has been banned from keeping animals and ordered to pay more than £1700 after the RSPCA found a starving and filthy Great Dane

Roxy the dog was just 18 inches around her waist and was dehydrated with uncliped nails and her own waste smeared over her fur and in her ears.

RSPCA inspector Richard Lythgoe said:” Poor Roxy had been utterly neglected.

“The vet found no signs of any condition which would have caused her to be so underweight - so she must have just not been given proper food for a quite some time.

“All the signs were that she had been left living in filthy conditions with very little care or attention.

“It is hard to comprehend but I think the door was shut on this dog and she was just forgotten about.

“I am very pleased a ban has been put in place, hopefully this will stop other animals from suffering.”



Samantha Clark, who's 32 and of Glebe Road in the town faced magistrates last week.

Roxy is said to be doing much better and will soon be available from the RSPCA's Block Fen site.
