Woman fined for breaking horse ban

AN animal welfare charity is urging people to be vigilant against people breaking bans on keeping animals.

AN animal welfare charity is urging people to be vigilant against people breaking bans on keeping animals.

The call from the RSPCA follows a court case involving a woman from High Wycombe who was caught keeping horses in Henley following a court ban.

Donna Glenister, 44, appeared at High Wycombe Magistrates? Court on Wednesday last week for breaching a five-year ban imposed in 2012.

The court heard that the RSPCA found out that Glenister had two horses at a stables in Henley but that the stables owners did not know about her ban.

Both horses, a former racehorse called Deliberation and a filly called Olivia, were removed from her care in March and have since been rehomed.

Glenister was ordered to pay a total of £716 in fines and costs and her ban will remain in place until 2017.

RSPCA inspector Rachel Smith said: ?The RSPCA depends on the public being our eyes and ears. As this case demonstrates, the courts do take these matters seriously ? and so do we.?

She urged any member of the public who knows of anyone who is breaching a ban on keeping animals to call the charity on 0300 123 4999.

l In 2014, the RSPCA secured 2,419 convictions by private prosecution to protect animals against those who break the law.
