Dog owner jailed over pet death.

Byline: ASHLIE MCANALLY reporters@dailyrecord.co.uk

A DOG owner who allowed his Labrador to suffer with a tumour for at least six months before she had to be put down has been caged for 60 days.

James Brown, 29, failed to get help for Tara even when she had a "painful tumour" the size of a child's small football and a growth caused by rotting flesh.

After a complaint was made, animal charity SPCA visited Brown's flat in Pollok, Glasgow, last March on two occasions. On the second, they rescued Tara.

He claimed he had no money to take her to the vet.

But when she was taken for medical treatment, she had to be put down due to the severity of her condition.

Brown pled guilty to an offence under the Animal Health and Welfare Act between October 2016 and March 2017, for failing to get adequate care and treatment, causing her to be put down.
