- A house in the UK was discovered with scores of pets in complete neglect
- There were also many dead animals all over the house
- The living ones were found in terrible conditions, most of them with signs of hunger
The Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA) in the UK discovered the harrowing situation of a large number of dead and neglected animals, which were found inside a woman’s house in terrible conditions.
Their owner, 46-year old Cruel Tracey Tindall, was charged with 11 counts for failing to meet the animals’ needs, and 9 causes of unnecessary suffering. She was sentenced to be imprisoned for 18 weeks, and she won’t be able to have animals for 20 years.
Tindall had three dogs, several cats and kittens, three geckos and one bearded dragon, in what prosecutors have described as one of the "most serious" cases of animal neglect they had ever seen.
There were also many dead animals inside Tindall’s house. RSPCA officers recall being “sickened” by what they found. There was no food, water or bedding for the animals, and everything was covered in rubbish and feces. “There were bodies of two rabbits decomposing” in one part of the house, they said.
Tindall explained she had been living with her mother, who suffered from dementia, and went to her house to tend the animals as much as she could.
