It just beggars belief.
A slag so scared of her Rottweiler that she left it to near starve to death in her backyard!
Did the cunt never think about giving it away to a good home?
Did the cunt never hang her washing out?
I have two Rottweilers and I have never been scared of them.
But she is talking bullshit, and making excuses… And there is no fucking excuse.
It seems that every day I am reading about animal neglect and cruelty.
It has to fucking stop.
And what did the judge give her?
A thousand pound fuckin fine and a 5 year ban on keeping animals.
Had the dog been a child, she would have been in prison. Cruelty is cruelty. I see very little difference.
Until penalties are toughened up, this kind of thing will never stop.
There is never, ever a reason for an animal to starve.
The top and bottom of it is the stupid slut cunt was too self obsessed and worried about her nights out to care for the poor dog.
Personally, I would starve the slag and make her live in a shed for 5 yrs.
You can bet the cunt would never do it again.

A young grandmother left a rottweiler to starve in its own excrement for five years because she was too ‘petrified’ to take care of it properly, a court has heard.
Emma Spooner, 32, was slammed by a judge at Dudley Magistrates’ Court yesterday for neglecting the aging dog, and exposing her children to the dangerous possibility of being savaged when it went feral.
Spooner kept the dog alive, who was called Kane and aged between 10 and 12, by throwing him scraps in her back yard in Peel Way, Tividale, near Birmingham.
Summing up at her trial, Judge Graham Wilkinson: ‘You left this dog to fester in the back yard. This poor animal, for five years, lived in a small space, unloved and mostly neglected.
‘He goes feral, because he is not getting love and attention. He is left to lie in his own filth. He’s occasionally thrown food and he wastes away.
‘Had it not been that someone locally alerted the RSPCA, eventually you would have realised you had not seen him for a few days, because he would have wasted away to nothing.
‘He was left to starve slowly and would probably have died a sad, lonely death. All this time, you allowed your children to be at risk.’
Spooner, who became a grandmother at the age of 31, was handed a curfew preventing her from leaving her home between 7pm and 6am on Fridays and Saturdays, and was banned from keeping an animal for five years.

Judge Wilkinson also ordered her to pay costs of £1,000, which he told her to raise by giving up smoking.
She admitted failing to make sure that Kane was provided with a suitable diet and environment.
At one stage, the judge also halted the proceedings, ordering Spooner to leave the court because she was chewing gum, although he called the case back about 30 minutes later.
Prosecuting for the RSPCA, Gaynor Sutton said Inspector Steve Morrall had called at Spooner’s home on January 29 and could see the dog was ‘very lean’. The yard was covered in faeces.

High life: Spooner spent much of her time out in nightclubs, while her dog was abandoned to starve and would have ‘probably have died a sad, lonely death,’ according to the judge who sentenced her
Insp threw some food to the starving animal, which quickly gobbled it up.
Defending Spooner, Vanita Joshi said her client was ‘petrified’ of the dog.
It had belonged to her former partner, but had been left with her when he left Spooner and moved in with another man.
Speaking to her local newspaper, Spooner said she had tried to get the RSPCA to put him down, but they had wanted £200 to do the job. She was only willing to pay half.
Spooner, whose 14-year-old daughter had a baby son 17 months ago, said: ‘The dog belonged to my ex-partner.
‘I was under the impression he would look after it and he should have taken it when he left but he didn’t.
‘I was made out in court to be bad but the dog wasn’t kept outside for five years, like they said. He used to come in at night.’
She added: ‘The dog didn’t like women or children and, apart from biting two of the kids, he went for my throat.’
