Porirua man banned from owning dog

The owner of a pit bull tied up, starved and confined to a shed for more two weeks has been banned from owning a dog for 10 years.
Isdore Jason Mario Skelton, of Waitangirua, was also fined $750 when he appeared in Porirua District Court.
SPCA animal welfare inspector Brett Lahman said the dog, Rosie, had to be euthanised as her dealings with humans had left her fearful and aggressive.
