A man and a woman have pleaded guilty to animal cruelty charges following the deaths of two dogs.
Aaron Wielding, aged 25, and Selina Jane Ferguson, aged 21, of Edlington, appeared charged with four offences at Doncaster Magistrates Court today in an RSPCA prosecution.
The pair, of Staveley Street, are accused of causing unnecessary suffering to two dogs, a female dog called Rosie and a bulldog type dog called Buster, between January 1 and February 11 this year, which resulted in the animals’ deaths.
They each face three charges of causing unnecessary suffering to a protected animal, and a charge breaching the duty of a person responsible for an animal to ensure its welfare. All the offences are under the Animal Welfare Act, 2006.
The case was adjourned and the pair were given unconditional bail.
