Hughes claimed the dog lost weight because of illness, but she had no proof that she had taken the dog to a vet for needed medical care. Also, a vet who examined Fred after he had been seized found no evidence of the dog suffering any sickness -- he was merely being slowly starved to death.
Hughes certainly hasn't missed any meals. Maybe her punishment should be that she be chained to a tree and starved until she looks like Fred?
