Two women allegedly neglected and starved horses

TWO women have appeared before the Hervey Bay Magistrates Court after allegedly neglecting and starving horses.

Standing at the bench on Wednesday, June Annette Wogandt and Bianca Jayne Wogandt are each facing two charges of breaching their duty of care to an animal.

Bianca, born in 1986 and June, born in 1949, are charged with failing to feed two mares, a chestnut and paint.

It is alleged by the RSPCA the failure to care for the horses by the two women at a Dundathu property occurred between November 10 and December 19.

Both women and RSPCA Inspector Penny Flaherty were in court before Magistrate Graham Hillan on Wednesday.

The women's power of attorney Henry Rice also joined them on the bench.

The case was adjourned and both women will again appear in the Magistrates Court on March 18.
