A mother of three from Queensland is banned to own a pet after neglecting a two-year-old American bulldog named Bella, who later died on the RSPCA.

Ariel Crowther-Christine, 25, did not appear on Tuesday at Brisbane Magistrates Court for conviction. She was fined $ 3800 and had a conviction recorded.

The court was told that Bella had looked like a & # 39; skeleton & # 39; because the allegations of non-feeding and three counts of not treating an injury were treated in the absence of Crowther-Christine.

From December 2018, the RSPCA received complaints about the poor health of the dog, including that Bella was so underweight that she had excellent bones.

The informant said that Bella was also listless and had a lump on the back of her leg, which seemed somewhat weak.

RSPCA inspectors visited the house several times and instructed Crowther-Christine to take the animal to the vet, which she did.

But during a follow-up visit by inspectors in March 2018, Bella turned out to be emaciated.

This is despite the fact that another animal in the garden was in good condition.

Crowther-Christine said that Bella was fed daily and away from the other animal because she & # 39; was now too weak to push him away while they were eating & # 39 ;.

Days later, Bella was confiscated and taken to the RSPCA where vets marked her as a & # 39; two & # 39; on an increase scale where a & # 39; nine & # 39; was considered to be obese.

The next day, Bella underwent surgery to treat her medical problems, but died later.

Prosecutor Tracey Jackson said the dog would have survived if she had had the right treatment.

Magistrate Linda Bradford-Morgan said the dog was apparently starving in the back yard.

A prohibition to own pets is made for life. The order can be assessed after five years.
