Pigs starved to death by Hailsham woman

Have your say

A Hailsham woman has been banned from keeping animals for five years after starving two pigs to death.

Nicola Patten, 48, of Court Lodge Close, Hailsham was also made to pay £250 costs, given a community order of 12 months with 12 months suspension, and made to do 160 hours unpaid work at Hastings Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday August 27.

She was found guilty of causing unnecessary suffering to two male pot-bellied pigs by failing to investigate their underweight conditions and provide them with a suitable environment.
