Animal neglect couple fined

Sheree Mackay and Luke Toy left their four-year-old american bulldog, Brooklyn, alone without food or water for about two weeks, according to the RSPCA.

Brooklyn was taken to the RSPCA Care Centre for treatment after neighbours alerted the authorities but she later had to be put down.

The couple were fined $5000 in the Midland Magistrates Court on August 17.

Animal cruelty or neglect can be reported to 1300 CRUELTY or through the RSPCA website.
