A man from Bow who kept ducks and exotic cats in unsuitable conditions has been banned from keeping animals for 10 years.
Monshur Alom, of Jodrell Road, admitted to three counts of failing to meet the welfare needs of two Asian leopard cats and eight white ducks.
Chelmsford Crown Court heard how the 37-year-old kept the animals at a property in Jaywick, Essex, in June last year when he failed to provide reasonable daily care, a suitable diet or a suitable living environment.
The ducks were kept at the rear of the garden which was littered with faeces and the only water they had was dirty.
The cats - which have been identified as listed under the dangerous wild animals act 1976 and for which Alom did not have a licence - were being kept in a conservatory.
