Man convicted of failing to treat injured horse

A ROSEBANK man has been fined and put on a good behaviour bond for failing to provide veterinary treatment to an injured horse he owned.

Paul Travill appeared before Magistrate R. Denes this morning, charged with failing to provide vet treatment to an animal he was in charge of.

This charge by the RSPCA comes just over five months after he was convicted a similar offence on June 1. On that occasion he was fined $81 court costs and ordered to pay $474.70 in veterinary costs. He was also placed on a two year good behaviour bond.

Animal protection advocates protested outside outside the court as Ms Denes ordered Travill pay more than $500 in RSPCA vet bills, $83 in court costs and a further 12 month good behaviour bond, which will run alongside the two year bond he received in June.
