A Woodstock woman is barred from owning, having custody of, or living with any animals for 5 years after she pleaded guilty to animal cruelty charges under the Ontario S.P.C.A. Act.

The OSPCA launched an investigation at the end of March after receiving a complaint from a neighbour about the condition of a dog in the woman's care. That investigation revealed a 10 year old West Highland Terrier mix suffering from severe skin conditions. The woman was ordered under the OSPCA Act to have the dog examined. When the woman failed to bring the dog for a follow-up examination a search of her home was conducted and the dog was seized. It has since been treated and has a new home.

The woman currently has other dogs and cats and will be permitted to keep them but she is subject to semi-annual inspections by the OSPCA during her probation period.
