#TheList Kim Broadbent of Tyersal Rd, Bradford BD4 – allowed four horses to suffer so severely that a foal died
Broadbent was convicted of causing unnecessary suffering to the horses by failing to seek appropriate professional veterinary care.
The RSPCA was alerted in January 2015 to a collapsed foal in a field in Pudsey. The foal was found to have died.
Three other adult horses were emaciated. They were taken into possession and placed in RSPCA care by police on veterinary advice.
RSPCA regional chief inspector Nick Welch said: “The defendant received numerous verbal warnings and has received advice and attempts to assist by the RSPCA several times over a long period, but she persistently failed to meet the needs of her horses.
“These poor horses were in a terrible stTate when we found them, and sadly one was already dead.”
Sentence:100 hours of community service; £200 costs; disqualified from keeping horses for life
