A dog was left to starve to death. Now, the dog owners, will be facing felony charges of aggravated cruelty to animals.
– A dog died after being left by its owners.
– The dog had nothing to eat.
– The real reason why the dog died was…
The dog owners, a 26-year-old man and a 24-year-old woman, left the dog possibly around mid-January. The dog is believed to have died just recently days before police came.
The dog was found inside a locked room. Police pointed out that although the dog did not eat anything for weeks, the main reason for its death was it was hit in the head. The laceration on the dog’s head penetrated its skull.
The owners claimed that the dog drowned in the flooding when Missisquoi River went over its banks. Police hoped that the dog owners just gave the dog up at a humane society and not resorted to leaving it unattended at the apartment.
