Deputies Investigate Animal Neglect & Abuse

Animal cruelty and neglect were investigated in Chula.  Livingston County Sheriff Steve Cox says the investigation began May 14th.  The report states they found one dead dog inside a kennel and it may have been killed by a second dog in the kennel.

Cox says there was no available food for the dog(s) except for a bag of unopened food laying inside the kennel. The kennel had not been cleaned and the only water available was a stagnant discolored puddle that had trash and other items floating in it.

The owner of the dogs was located and issued a summons for Animal Abuse and Animal Neglect.  The 32-year-old woman was released pending court appearances.

The surviving dog was removed and is at a safe location. Investigation completed.
