On 4 July 2019 an animal cruelty matter was heard in the Launceston Magistrates Court.  The matter related to a failure to provide appropriate treatment for a dog in 2018.  A man from Ravenswood was found guilty of Animal Cruelty Charges and fined $900.

The dog was transferred into the ownership of RSPCA and is now available for adoption after being in RSPCA care since 9 January 2018.  A confident gorgeous boy staff call  ‘Dude”.
