A Caldicot woman has had her animal ban extended for a further 10 years after two dogs were found in her home.

Kathleen Davidson (d.o.b 06/10/1953) of Newport Road, Caldicot, was sentenced at Newport Magistrates’ Court on 27 June after she previously pleaded guilty to one offence – a breach of disqualification.

Dogs breach of ban July19 pic2Back in July 2018 the defendant pleaded guilty to three offences that related to a number of equines and was banned from keeping any animal for 10 years.

RSPCA inspector Emma Smith said: “Following several calls from members of the public a police warrant was carried out at her address where two lurcher-type dogs were found in a reasonable body condition.

“We would very much like to thank the public for being our eyes and ears and for letting us know this person was keeping animals despite her ban.”

Magistrates extended the 10 year ban for another 10 years – making it a total of 20 years disqualification in respect of all animals. She was also ordered to pay £300 costs and a victim surcharge of £85 and given an electronic curfew for four months between the hours of 8pm-6am.

A deprivation order in respect to the two dogs known as Oddball and Mickey was also made. Mickey has already been rehomed and Oddball is currently at RSPCA Newport Animal Centre and is available for rehoming.
