A WOODRIDGE woman facing animal cruelty offences has had her matter dealt with in court.
Renee McAlister's matter was dealt with ex-parte on Monday in the Ipswich Magistrates Court after she failed to appear.
McAlister was charged on November 19, 2015 with five counts of breaching a duty of care to an animal.
The offences took place between February 15 and May 5, 2015 and are understood to relate to greyhounds.
McAlister was fined $3000 - with $1500 of that fine to be handed over to the RSPCA.
She was also required to pay more than $250 in professional costs.
McAlister was also banned from purchasing or acquiring any animal for three years.
