Grimsby woman banned from keeping animals for 10 years after kittens died from severe flea infestation

Grimsby woman banned from keeping animals for 10 years after kittens died from severe flea infestation

A Grimsby woman has been banned from keeping animals for a decade after three of her kittens died as a result of a severe flea infestation.

She was one of many offenders to appear at Grimsby Magistrates’ Court in recent days, along with criminals failing to comply with court orders, including breaching domestic violence protection and restraining orders.

Magistrates also dealt with a man who dropped a cigarette butt in the street, and a woman who failed to provide details for council tax purposes.

Here are eight criminals to appear before magistrates in Grimsby in the last week.

Kerri Dunstan, 35, of Anderson Street, Grimsby indicated a plea of guilty to causing unnecessary suffering to three kittens by a failure to act, namely by failing to provide adequate or any parasitic control. This led to the kittens becoming anaemic, which then led to the animals’ deaths.

She also pleaded guilty to failing to take reasonable steps to ensure the needs of the animals were met, namely by failing to provide any or adequate parasitic control, to investigate and address the cause of the kittens’ poor bodily condition and to failing to take any steps to resolve any severe flea infestation affecting the animals.
