It stated that Reich initially denied that she had a dog when inspectors first visited her property in January.
Later they searched her house and found Dharma partially hidden under the pile of laundry.
& # 39; He had already died & # 39 ;, was a statement.
& # 39; An autopsy revealed that Dharma had suffered from exhaustion, with a body score of 1 in 9, serous atrophy of the bone marrow and pancreatic atrophy.
& # 39; The dog also suffered from suspected pneumonia, which was most likely caused by hunger and an infected penis. & # 39;
RSPCA WA Chief Inspector Amanda Swift urged residents to report animal abuse to their Cruelty Hotline.
