Evil Bitch Locks Pet Dog in Kitchen and Leaves It to Die, Gets 18 Week Sentence

There is no excuse for this. She could have given the dog to someone. Heartless cunt

http://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2...ving-dog-death

A trainee solicitor who locked her pet dog in a kitchen and left it to suffer a prolonged and painful death over six days has been jailed for 18 weeks.

Katy Gammon, 27, moved out of her home in Bristol, leaving five-year-old boxer Roxy trapped inside without food or water, and the dog's remains were not discovered until 10 weeks later when neighbours reported a large amount of flies at the property.

Bristol magistrates court heard that Roxy had shredded part of the kitchen door in an attempt to escape and had emptied mops and buckets from cupboards to find water. Gammon had piled tins of dog food and dog treats outside the kitchen - just metres away from where Roxy was trapped. RSPCA inspectors had to remove Roxy's remains from the kitchen floor with a snow shovel.

Gammon, from Bristol, admitted causing unnecessary suffering to the dog and failing to prevent causing unnecessary suffering to an animal.

Dressed in a black suit, she remained emotionless in the dock as she was told her actions were deliberate.

Rod Mayall, chair of the bench, told Gammon: "This was prolonged neglect of a dog where she was locked in a house and left to die of starvation and dehydration.

"You have shown limited remorse. Although you were somewhat depressed, you failed to take up at least two offers of alternative housing for the dog.

"You failed to act as any normal person would. This is the most serious incident of animal cruelty that we have encountered in these courts."

Gammon was also banned from keeping animals for life.

Prosecuting for the RSPCA, Lindi Meyer said Gammon had acquired Roxy while living with her boyfriend, Adam Taylor, in December 2012. The couple separated in April 2013 and Gammon kept Roxy, leaving her home alone during the day while she went to work.

Initially, Roxy had roam of the house but Gammon later decided to lock her in the kitchen as she would urinate and defecate all over the house. In August 2013, Gammon began staying with her mother who lived a few streets away in Bristol.

She returned each morning to feed Roxy but only walked her three times a week, otherwise leaving the dog confined to the kitchen.

However, in late August, Gammon dislocated her knee and did not visit the property for a week – meaning Roxy was completely unattended.

Meyer said: "When anyone asked about Roxy, she lied and said her ex-boyfriend was looking after her."

Neighbours called Avon and Somerset police after spotting flies in the window of the property, and officers attended on 3 November.

Meyer said: "It was noted that there were unopened tins of dog food and an open pack of dog chews in the lounge but not in the kitchen for Roxy."

A postmortem examination carried out by an RSPCA vet found: "Roxy suffered the distress and discomfort of a gradual death. This suffering was entirely avoidable and unnecessary."

The court heard Roxy would have experienced abdominal pain, muscle spasms, blindness, an irregular heart rhythm and kidney failure before death.

In interview, Gammon claimed she had tried to find a new home for Roxy by posting messages on Facebook but did not have any takers. She said she last attended to Roxy at the house on 30 August last year.

However, she did not return – leaving Roxy without food or water – until a week later, on 6 September, when she found an awful smell. She claimed: "I didn't go into the house, I assumed she was dead. I never went back. I don't know what you want me to say. I can't change it. It's horrific."

In a victim impact statement, Taylor said he had felt physically sick after seeing photographs of Roxy's remains in the kitchen.

"Roxy was mistreated by her previous owner. She used to panic if she was left alone and would become distressed," he said. "I don't understand why Katy did this. She had so many friends and family who would have taken Roxy and would have helped her."

Farah Rasid, representing Gammon, said her client had been targeted by animal campaigners following Roxy's death and wanted to go to prison to ease pressure on her family, who had also been criticised.

Gammon had been training as a solicitor and was awaiting her first post when Roxy was discovered – ending her career.

Rasid said: "She is a young lady who has lost a career she was waiting to start."

A group of protestors demonstrated outside court calling for tough sentences for those found guilty of animal cruelty.

I'd vote for her to go through the same pain and suffering her dog did.

Glad her career is ruined just like that dog's life was. Stupid fucking bitch.

What a beautiful boxer. Sad she only got the limited time in jail. Anyone would have gladly taken the dog off her hands.

What is a solicitor?

Also, that sentence isn't long enough for someone so heinous that they would allow any living thing to languish and die so painfully. I don't even like making my dogs stay in my room and not having the run of the house when I run to the store. And in my room they have access to food, water, toys and my bed. Why did she not send someone to feed that poor animal???

18 fucking weeks?! What kind of sentence is that? I don't think that the UK, or at least the town of Bristol, takes the needless torturing of animals seriously. She needs a few years at least. With no food and water for three of every six days perhaps. Her license to practice law should be revoked before it is even given to her. Clearly she has no scruples.
