Nottingham woman who starved her dogs blames benefit cuts

Nottingham MagistratesA Nottingham mother who left her dogs so weak that they were unable to walk has blamed benefit cuts for not being able to feed them.


A  mum of five  admitted to starving her dogs to the point where one was so weak it was unable to stand, saying she was unable to feed them after her benefits were cut.

The RSPCA rescued the three dogs and found that their ribs and bones were clearly visible due to malnourishment.

Stephanie Wheeldon, from Aspley, pleased guilty to causing unnecessary cruelty to animals at Nottingham Magistrates Court yesterday.
