Woman fined and banned after cats locked in truck
The Inspectors found five cat carry cages lined up against the far wall of the vehicle containing 13 male and female cats, including kittens. One of the cats was charging against the door of the cat cage. The truck was unlit and unventilated, and there was no food or water available and the cats appeared distressed.
In her sentencing remarks, Magistrate Langdon said that she had no doubt that the cats had suffered harm having been locked in the van for three days without food, water, lighting or ventilation.
The animals were seized under the Animal Welfare Act 2002 and were taken back to RSPCA's Malaga headquarters where they underwent a full veterinary clinical examination and treatment.
