Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : January 28th 2009
2 INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, January 29, 2009 MB Man guilty of animal cruelty A FIVE Dock man who let his dog become so emaciated it was unable to stand has been found guilty of aggravated animal cruelty. An RSPCA inspector visited the property in January last year after receiving a cruelty complaint. There the inspector found a border collie in an emaciated condition with his ribs, hips and spine clearly visible. The dog was unable to stand and was suffering from fly- bitten ears and smelt of urine. The man said he was unable to take the dog to a vet that night and surrendered it to a RSPCA NSW officer who took the dog to Yagoona Shelter for treatment. The veterinary report con- firmed the dog was extremely emaciated and was suffering from a number of other con- ditions, including pressure sores on both hind limbs and an abnormally large bladder. The man was charged with failing to provide veterinary treatment and aggravated ani- mal cruelty. At Burwood Court last Thursday, he was given a five- year good behaviour bond (sec- tion 9) and ordered to pay professional costs of $750. The magistrate also ordered that the RSPCA can inspect the animals at his home at any time with two hours' notice.

The school has asked the council to approve its plan to have teachers escort the students between campuses un- til a new ''kiss-and-ride'' zone and car park entrance is com- plete by May. An extraordinary meeting was called last Thursday night to consider the matter but the mayor and deputy mayor were absent so the matter was de- ferred ''since the item was of particular importance'', a coun- cil spokesman said. The Inner-West Weekly re- ported last week that 617 students are affected. This is incorrect. The school advises that 284 students from Kinder- garten to Year 5 will walk between campuses and that other arrangements have been made for Pre-Kinder students to go directly to the new school.
