Animal Cruelty

July 22nd, 2009 by NashVeggie Leave a reply »

I came across a story from Giles County, Tennessee regarding a woman being charged with animal cruelty.  Allegedly, this woman kept more than 20 dogs in her home and chose not to give any proper care.  According to the local radio news the dogs were found in “deplorable condition”.

From WKSR.com :

A Pulaski woman will appear before General Sessions Judge John Damron next month to answer to charges of cruelty to animals.

More than 20 dogs of various age, size and breed were seized from their owner recently during the service of a search warrant.

Debra Sanderson was issued a citation. She was arraigned in court last week.

Pulaski Chief of Police John Dickey told the Pulaski Citizen newspaper that the animals were found in deplorable condition and obviously in need of medical care.

A local veterinarian treated the dogs before representatives with the Humane Society took possession of them.

Sanderson is to appear in court August 27th at 8am.

    I would be curious, if found guilty, what her sentence is. It would probably be no more than a slap on the wrist. Courts never take these crimes seriously.
