A WOMAN has been banned from keeping any pet except a dog after admitting two animal cruelty charges.

Carol Ann Kerry failed to provide a suitable living environment for her 11 poodles and three budgerigars.

The 70-year-old, of Old Redbridge Road, Southampton, was told by Southampton Magistrates' Court she would be unable to own any pets, save for dogs, for a period of 12 months.

She was discharged conditionally for two years and told to pay £300 costs and £20 victim surcharge.
