Starved Maya put down

IT WAS a sad day for Rockhampton animal lovers yesterday after Maya, the starved and neglected great dane, was put out of her suffering.

“Maya has suffered enough and has been put to sleep today,” the RSPCA’s Rockhampton branch president Elizabeth Shanahan said.

“It’s a very sad day for us.”

Maya had been found barely alive under a tree on Gladstone Rd recently.
