Leaves and sawdust are all that were found in a two-year-old Pit Bull mix dog’s stomach. Thanks to a concerned citizen from Youngstown, Ohio, the complaint came in which first alerted authorities to the dog.
On arrival to the residence, a humane agent from Animal Charity found the dead dog chained to a doghouse in James Antwon Jones’ back yard.
Jones was indicted on felony animal charges and will have his day in court soon. He was indicted under Goddard’s Law which makes cruelty to companion animals a felony charge.
Sadly, the organization responsible for this case and many others is in financial trouble.
“Animal charges are very specific,” Animal Charity’s Mary Louk shared. “It’s very different than having a charge for a human crime and this is what we’re not going to have available for us in Mahoning County if Animal Charity isn’t here.”
