#TheList Tyrone Whiteside, born 10/04/1969, of 24 Dickson Park, Seapatrick, Banbridge BT32 4PQ – caused unnecessary suffering and failed to ensure the welfare of a dog in his care.
A case was brought against Whiteside by Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Council under the provisions of the Welfare of Animals Act (Northern Ireland) 2011.
An Animal Welfare Officer, who visited the defendant’s property in April 2016, discovered a dog in poor physical condition. The dog was taken into the care of the council after an assessment by a veterinary surgeon determined that the dog was likely to suffer.
Sentencing: fined £150 and also ordered to pay an offender’s levy of £15. Banned from keeping animals for five years.
