    A BAYSWATER man has been banned from owning a dog for five years after being charged by the RSPCA with animal cruelty.
 
Bevan Martin was also fined $2500 and will be subjected to regular checks by RSPCA inspectors over the next five years.

The Perth Magistrates Court heard today Martin's Bayswater property was visited by the RSPCA in October 2012 in response to a cruelty complaint.

A nine and a half year old Kelpie cross dog was found collapsed and gasping for breath in the back yard of the home.

The dog had a large wound on its back leg and his body was limp and its head was covered in flies.

The inspectors rushed the dog to their vehicle but the animal died in the inspector's arms.

The dog was later taken to Murdoch University for a post mortem examination.

The post mortem report confirmed the dog had a large infected wound extending from above the stifle to the foot.

It also had chronic diabetes, liver disease, bilateral cataracts and chronic kidney disease.

"If the he had received the appropriate veterinary attention and treatment required for the wound and diabetes, Dino would have still been alive today," RSPCA Chief Inspector Amanda Swift
said.

Martin was also ordered to pay the RSPCA nearly $1300 in court costs.
