Linda McLauclan/Thomson was originally accused of beating her pet dog to death and asphyxiating her with a plastic bag, but her not guilty plea was accepted by the court

McLauchlan was originally accused of battering Missy then suffocating her by wrapping a plastic bag over her head. However, her not guilty plea to causing the dog to die from blunt force trauma and asphyxiation was accepted, and sentencing was for failure to provide proper care.

Scottish SPCA Inspector Louise Seddon said: “The charge was dealt as McLauchlan caused Missy suffering by failing to provide adequate care and veterinary treatment for her health conditions, including a skin condition and overgrown claws.

“Upon veterinary post-mortem examination, Missy was found to have chronic dermatitis and massively overgrown claws, some of them were so long the nails had twisted round into a semi-circle type shape.

“This would have significantly and severely compromised Missy’s welfare over a prolonged period”.

She added: “We welcome the fact that this case has been dealt with by the court and the sentence handed down.

“However it further highlights our push for tougher and more consistent sentencing.

“This level of neglect didn’t happen overnight and could have easily been avoided.”

Sentencing:
130-hour community payback order. NO BAN.

  1. That poor wee dog must have suffered for months if not years and all she gets is 150 hours of community service and no ban so she can do it again, justice system is a joke. 👿👿👿👿

  2. I can’t believe what I just read! The poor little dog suffered God knows what behind closed doors!!! No justice for his extreme suffering… I hope she gets what’s coming to her… People’s justice! Because the law is an absolute joke!

  3. I am utterly disgusted to hear that she got such a lenient sentence,surely she should have been sent to prison for the pain she inflicted on that poor dog, another judge who doesn’t live in the real world I see

    1. As long as the system remains lenient concerning animal abuse and neglect then it’s clearly going to send a message to all who are in the same frame of mind as to think they can get away with it, And the message the courts are sending is that it is ok to abuse,neglect and kill an animal as their lives do not matter, that’s the message that is going out to others. Yes, the system is corrupt and they need to change their laws and policies to match the crimes committed against the welfare and wellbeing of animals.

    2. That’s if she is sober enough to do the community service should have been jail a dogs life is as valuable as a humans totally disgusting , that dog must have been in so much pain it’s so easy to give a dog up for adoption and if you can’t afford veterinary care there is the PDSA they would have helped such a shame in that poor dog

  4. The systems a joke, this is happening too often, this poor defenceless dog clearly had prolonged pain and suffering at the hands of this EVIL owner, and then on top of the cruelty already suffered ended his life battered and strangled ! Banned for 5 year from having pets OMG ! She should be banned for life from being around any vulnerable animal or person for that matter evil is evil and 5 year ain’t gona change that !!!

  5. Such a sad story. Pure evil! Id appreciate if you could remove the address from this post though as she no longer lives at this address as i moved here a couple of months ago with my 6 kids and im worried for their safety as this address has been posted all over the internet.

        1. I think she is in Fife somewhere, that’s where social services took up her case so I presume that’s where she is xx

  6. she should be banded from ever having a pet again a fine a big one at that and how about her being treated the same way as she treated the poor dog but no if it was done to her the person would be jailed where the justise for the poor wee dog

  7. Should of had prison sentence and life long ban from keeping any animal this woman should not be allowed to have any animal ever again cruel vile bitch

  8. she should think shame of herself to put a poor animal through that . shame on you you horrible person . hope you get what you deserve when people realise who you are when your doing your public service .

  9. What an evil wicked bitch she should have been jailed I would love to put a plastic bag over her head and watch her slowly suffocate.

  10. this bitch needs dealt with, justice system is an insult to animals, due to laws being so lenient, it actually allows the sick perversion of these dangers to society, that poor dog suffered for years, and that is all she got, personally i hope she gets recognised and left near dead,jail would be like a holiday camp for the evil bitch

  11. This should be a life time ban our system is so out dated, it’s atroucious that this poor dog had to suffer, because she just didn’t care
    Its so upsetting no dog should have to live or be treated like this, shame on you karma will be calling
