Pingelly couple wanted on animal cruelty charges

An arrest warrant has been issued by the Narrogin Magistrates Court for a Pingelly couple charged with animal cruelty offences.

Steven Conway (34) and Kylie Ann Hall (28) were due to appear in the court yesterday to answer charges of animal cruelty for allegedly failing to provide sufficient food and water to several animals, including sheep, rabbits, roosters, pigs, goats and dogs.

RSPCA WA is seeking public assistance to locate the couple. Anyone with information is asked to contact WA Police immediately on 131 444.

RSPCA WA Chief Inspector Amanda Swift said it will be alleged that when RSPCA WA attended the property we found a number of deceased animals and the dogs were visibly emaciated, dehydrated and stressed, suffering injuries derived from prolonged containment.

"We now call for public help to locate Mr Conway and Ms Hall to enable the Court to determine the appropriate sentence for their action," Inspector Swift said.

If you witness any animal cruelty or neglect, please take action and report it to the RSPCA WA on 1300 CRUELTY or www.rspcawa.asn.au.
