Life ban for farmer (75) thumbnail

AN elderly Randalstown farmer has been banned from keeping dogs for life after he pleaded guilty to causing unnecessary suffering to two German Shepherds, which were locked in a trailer with their own faeces for over a year.
George Hugh Richardson (75) also admitted failing to take reasonable steps to ensure the needs of the dogs were met.
These failings included a lack of a suitable diet, a suitable environment and the need to be protected from pain, suffering, injury and diseases.
One of the dogs had to be euthanised on veterinary advice.
