Kennel worker starved and tortured dog
A former kennel worker from California, USA, was accused to nearly starve her German Shepherd dog to death.
The woman was a kennel attendant at a veterinary clinic when animal welfare officers found an emaciated dog at her place. The German Shepherd weighed only 37 pounds. The woman admitted having starved her dog but telling it was a crime of omission, not commission, according to the Examiner. The vet’s report revealed that the dog had been fed hair, dirt and little stones.
The woman was sentenced to 30 days in county jail, 3 years of probation and to pay over USD 2.000 in restitution to the Orange County German Shepherd Rescue organization.
The dog is doing fine now and has already found a new loving home.
