    Default Owner Of Husky Pack That Starred In 'Spice Girls' Video Starved Her Dogs

    Huskies who starred in Spice Girls video were left so hungry and thirsty by owner they tried to drink from bucket of BLEACH

    • Lorna Vince dumped the emaciated animals at her daughter's home, who was so shocked at their condition she called the RSPCA
    • The grandmother denies ever owning them and claims they belong to her daughter

    By ANNA EDWARDS



    The owner of a pack of huskies that starred in a Spice Girls video has been banned for life from owning pets after her daughter reported her for animal cruelty.

    Lorna Vinceís six dogs were emaciated and had been left without food and had not been exercised. They were so thirsty they tried to drink from a bucket of bleach, a court heard.
    Grandmother Vince, 58, a former husky racer, was convicted of animal cruelty at Camberwell Green Magistratesí Court, south London last Friday.



    The dogs appeared in the Goodbye video looking healthy and fit - but their owner allowed them to starve and did not have any exercise






    As well as appearing in the video for Spice Girls hit Goodbye, they starred on the album cover for electronic music duo Goldfrapp




    Vince of Beddington, Surrey, dumped her six emaciated huskies at her daughterís house on December 9, last year.

    Three of the dumped dogs, Kashmere, Coda, and Magic, had appeared in the video for Spice Girls hit Goodbye and on the album cover for electronic music duo Goldfrapp.


    Vince a mother-of-four, used to race a team of 10 dogs in events organised by the British Siberian Racing Association.
    She also used the dogs to raise money for the Little Treasures Childrenís Trust organising Ďhug a huskyí days and allowing people to be pictured with the dogs.
    But Vinceís daughter Chantal and estranged husband Arthur, who would deliver food to her motherís to help feed the dogs, were so horrified by the sight of the dogs they called the RSPCA, who came to collect them the following day.
    The six dogs, that are named Shade, Coda, Magic, Kashmere, Manson and Red have now been re-homed.
    Vince denied owning the dogs or leaving them with her daughter.



    Lorna Vince's six dogs were emaciated and had been left without food and had not been exercised. They were so thirsty they tried to drink from a bucket of bleach






    In court Vince claimed the dogs, which were left hungry and thirsty, were her daughters and she later said she was considering launching an appeal

    Vince's daughter said the family had struggled to come to terms with how her mother had treated the animals


    But she was found guilty of causing unnecessary suffering to an animal, by failing to provide them with an adequately wholesome and nutritious diet.

    Vince was banned from owning pets for life and was given a 12-week custodial sentence, suspended for two years. She was also ordered to pay £500 in costs.
    RSPCA Inspector Rebecca London said: 'When I first saw the six dogs it was completely shocking.

    'Compared to how fit and healthy huskies usually are, these dogs were almost like skeletons.'
    'This was a horrible case made worse because the owner was an experienced breeder and knew how to look after the dogs properly, but just did not do so.'
    In court Vince claimed the dogs were Chantalís and she later said she was considering launching an appeal.

    Speaking after the case, she said: 'I am disgusted by what happened, I fought against the sort of thing for years. I didnít know what was going on until I saw the RSPCA lady.

    'There is no way on earth I would starve dogs. I thought maybe in later years I could take on an old dog, it is like being in a nightmare.'
    Chantal Vince testified against her mother after the dogs were dumped on her doorstep last December.
    The 41-year-old who lives three doors down from Vince said she was 'flabbergasted' at the state of the dogs.
    She said: 'I couldnít recognise who was who. They were in need of urgent medical care and all I could think of was the RSPCA.
    'They were ravenous, trying to get anything they could, but one was so lifeless I wasnít sure she would make it through the night.'
    Ms Vince said the family had struggled to come to terms with what had happened.
    She said: 'I still canít get my head around it, neither can my dad, it is all we have been talking about, trying to figure out what triggered it.

    'We were buying the dogs food for her, but she never said anything. We had no idea, I just wish we had stepped in sooner.'

    How horrible. I'm wondering if there is mental illness there, because it seems really strange someone who always took good care of dogs suddenly doesn't.

    I wonder if she has early dementia. This seems very out of character. Poor doggies!
