Two dogs were thrown out with the rubbish after being left to starve to death by their owner.
Sheridan Greer, 23, split up with her boyfriend and moved out of her house in Burnley, Lancashire, but left 12-month-old Patch and 18-month-old Duke behind.
The two Staffordshire bull terriers had to fend for themselves by eating empty cans and sweet wrappers, however before long their had starved to death.
When the police and RSPCA inspectors raided the property they found the dead dogs in the back yard surrounded by bags of rubbish.
Two cats were also found, however they had somehow managed to survive.
Burnley Magistrates Court heard how Greer had occasionally returned to the house, but failed to feed or give water to the dogs.
Upon finding their lifeless bodies she dragged them into the yard with the rest of the rubbish.
A post mortem showed the dogs’ weight had dropped from a healthy 14 kilos down to 11 by the time they had died.
Greer, who told prosecutors she couldn’t cope with looking after the dogs after her benefits were reduced and she split with her boyfriend, admitted causing unnecessary suffering to the dogs and not taking reasonable steps to ensure the needs of a pet were met.
She was banned from owning pets for life, given an 18-week suspended prison sentence and was ordered to pay £200 costs and an £80 victim surcharge.
Inspector Lyndsey Taylor of the RSPCA said the dogs would have been starving for at least fours weeks before they died, and said the post mortem revealed they had succumbed to eating items like tins and dish clothes due to their hunger.
‘Seeing those dogs when we first went to the house is an image that will stay with me forever,’ she added.
‘They had died in the kitchen and then were thrown out like pieces of rubbish.
‘We understand that after she moved out she had actually been coming back to the property but she still let them starve to death. She probably couldn’t cope with looking after the pets but that is no excuse for what she did.’
