    A Masterton woman's been prosecuted for one of the most disturbing cases of animal neglect the SPCA's ever seen

    A Masterton woman's been prosecuted for one of the most disturbing cases of animal neglect the SPCA's ever seen


    Lindsay Fraser first came to the attention of inspectors in 2018 due to concerns over her 43 sheep.

    Follow-up visits over the next two years uncovered more suffering - sheep and horses with untreated wounds, serious injuries, severe fly strike and parasites - and many that had been left to starve.

    SPCA CEO Andrea Midgen says words can't describe the pain and suffering these animals must have gone through.

    Fraser's been sentenced at the Masterton District Court this week to 150 hours community work and was ordered to pay 15-thousand dollars reparations.

    She's also disqualified from owning stock animals, with the exception of two, for 10 years.
