#TheList Nathan Lee Fisher, born 06/02/1993, of 22 Wesley Street, Amlwch LL68 9EY – banned from keeping animals after a dog was found dead under a trampoline while another was severely emaciated
Nathan Lee Fisher admitted causing unnecessary suffering to the Akita named Kuma and the puppy’s mother Layla who was described as a ‘bag of bones’
RSPCA Cymru got involved after North Wales Police attended Fisher’s address where they found Kuma dead in the back garden underneath a trampoline.
Layla was also found at the house and was described as “so skinny that bones were clearly visible through her coat”.
The RSPCA said the dogs suffered unnecessarily due to a failure to adequately explore and address their weight loss.
RSPCA inspector Phil Lewis said: “These poor Akita dogs were subject to outright neglect and ill-treatment, which cost one of the dogs their life.
“Fortunately, the other has been happily re-homed from an RSPCA animal centre.
“When she was found at the Kinmel Bay property, she looked an absolute bag of bones but thankfully her suffering is over.”
Sentence: 12-week prison sentences for the two charges, to run concurrently, suspended for 18 months; 12-month community order, 180 hours of community work; nine-month alcohol treatment order; fined £750 and ordered to pay a £115 victim surcharge. Banned from keeping animals for 10 years (expires March 2027).
