Owner left pet lizards to starve…Maggots found in their tank

A woman who allowed her pet lizards to starve has been banned from keeping reptilles for five years.
Liberty McGill, 30, of Mount Pleasant Street, Queensbury, admitted two offences of causing unnecessary suffering to the bearded dragons.

She was conditionally discharged for two years and was ordered to pay £250 costs.

Tanya Forrett, prosecuting, said a call to the RSPCA from a member of the public claimed the lizards had been abandoned.

An inspector attended McGill’s property on June 8 last year and could see the lizard tank through the window and saw one standing up but could not tell if they had any food or water.
