Pet shop owner prosecuted by RSPCA
A Hull pet shop owner's been disqualified from keeping caged exotics, rabbits, reptiles, guinea pigs and caged birds for life, after a prosecution brought by the RSPCA.
Rebecca Dawn McHugh, who's 37 of the Boulevard, was sentenced by Hull Magistrates after being convicted of four offences.
The RSPCA was called to Hull Pets and Garden on Beverley Road in June last year, almost five months after the shop closed, and found the species.
McHugh was also sentenced to a two-year community order, and ordered to pay £300 costs and an £85 victim surcharge.
