The irony here is terrible. A stock feed employee starved her horse #animalcruelty Heather Tasker Rose, a stock feed employee, failed to provide her Chestnut Standardbred Gelding, known as Rusty, with proper and sufficient food, and failing to take steps to have Rusty treated by a vet. Ms Rose was fined $6,000 and ordered to pay $1,066.60 veterinary costs. Ms Rose was also banned from owning all animals for 10 years. RSPCA inspectors investigated Rusty in a paddock in West Swan on April 3 2014, after receiving a cruelty complaint. When inspectors found Rusty, the 23-year-old horse was emaciated with its ribs, hip bones and vertebrae protruding. Rusty was suffering from severe muscle wastage, and appeared lethargic as inspectors approached him.
