Man given probation in animal cruelty case involving 58 dogs in Springtown

Comments Off on Man given probation in animal cruelty case involving 58 dogs in Springtown


“So basically this guy is free, & as long as he isn’t naughty within the 2 years, his criminal record could be wiped clean…what a load of crap! Anyone convicted & given a petty fine, probation or suspended sentence, for animal abuse; should stay on police records. Innocent lives were lost because of this dick head & I think 2 years probation stinks!! Probation isn’t a deterrent to other’s, it’s a bloody joke…Look at him…I would love to wipe that smug smirk off this dick heads bloody face!!”

A Fort Worth man accused of subjecting 58 dogs to unhealthy conditions on Parker County property has been sentenced to two years’ probation in a case in which four other family members face animal cruelty and child endangerment charges.

In May, a then-18-month-old boy was found in a crib inside a home surrounded by animal waste from the dogs, authorities have said.

Three dogs were euthanized shortly after authorities seized them in May, and five puppies died a few days later, Parker County Sheriff Larry Fowler said after the canines were taken away.

Harry George Weldon, 50, agreed to a plea agreement last month in a Weatherford courtroom to a charge of cruelty to non-livestock animals, a Class A misdemeanor.

In addition to probation, Weldon was ordered to pay a $500 fine, $262 in court costs and perform 80 hours of community service, according to Parker County criminal court records.

Weldon could not be reached Wednesday for comment.

His wife, Teresa Weldon, 48, and the toddler’s uncle, Joseph Weldon, 23, rejected plea agreements on the charges of animal cruelty. Their trials are pending.

Neither Soraya Joslin of Weatherford, Teresa Weldon’s attorney, nor Tiffany Branson of Weatherford, Joseph Weldon’s attorney, could be reached on Wednesday.

Child endangerment charges have been filed against the toddler’s mother, Amanda Gayle Weldon, 29; his uncle, Christopher Brett Weldon, 26, Teresa Weldon and Joseph Weldon. Those cases are expected to be presented to a Parker County grand jury in the next few weeks, Parker County Assistant District Attorney Jeff Swain said Tuesday in an email.

The boy was not in foster care, said Child Protective Services spokeswoman Marissa Gonzales. Information on who was taking care of him was unavailable on Wednesday.

Authorities received a tip in early May about unhealthy conditions for the dogs at a residence in the 900 block of Lynch Bend Road in Springtown.

Officials said many dogs were found in poor condition. Animal control officers found unsanitary living conditions.

Thirty-one dogs were found in crates inside the residence in their own urine and feces, without food or water, authorities said. Several outdoor pens contained puppies sitting in their own waste, authorities said.

The dogs were taken to the Weatherford-Parker County Animal Shelter.

“Some dogs were adopted,” said Dustin Deel, interim director of animal services at the Weatherford-Parker County Animal Shelter. “There were others that had to be euthanized.”

Authorities said Weldon was apparently allowed to adopt animals from an undisclosed Metroplex animal shelter without a proper background check.


Dunbar man pleads guilty to animal cruelty charges

CHARLESTON, W.Va. — A Dunbar man admitted to animal cruelty charges Friday in connection to allegations that he fired BBs at a small dog in a cage.

Steven P. King, 20, pleaded guilty Friday to one misdemeanor count of animal cruelty. He faces up to a year of prison on the charges.

On Jan. 8, Dunbar Police Officer W.M. Moss responded to a disturbance call at King’s home at 413 17th St. A neighbor told the officer that he tried to force in his way into King’s house for fear that he was abusing an animal inside, according to a police report.

The floors apparently were covered with animal excrement; much of it was dried and ground into the carpet, the report states.

Two children, ages 9 and 10, were in the living room of the house, according to the report. One child was walking barefoot on the carpet. Rotting food, bags of trash, a bottle of boric acid and a turkey carcass also were reported lying around the house.

The dog, a small pinscher, apparently was roaming around the living room, in which sat a small black cage surrounded by spent BBs, the reports states. Moss examined the dog, and found that it was covered with welts, apparently from the BBs.

A Dunbar humane officer took the animal, and workers from Child Protective Services relocated the children. Another person in the house, Krissa Bowers, was arrested for child neglect, according to the report.

As part of a special type of plea agreement, King admitted to the animal cruelty charge, but did not stipulate to actually firing the BB gun at the dog.

Kanawha County Assistant Prosecutor Fred Giggenbach has recommended the full six-month prison sentence on the charges.

The case is before Kanawha Circuit Judge Duke Bloom.

Crocker, Dann face animal cruelty charges

Comments Off on Crocker, Dann face animal cruelty charges

32 more cats found at location last week –  Coldwater, Mich.

It’s been almost two years since Branch County Sheriff’s Office (BCSO) deputies found 42 cats and kittens inside a sweltering, 110-degree trailer off of Lott Road, Coldwater.

Now Richard Crocker, 63, and Andrea Dann, 36, who lived across the street, have been charged with animal cruelty, a 4-year felony in the case.

Branch County District Judge Brent Weigle set a $10,000 bond for both but released Crocker on his own recognizance. A preliminary exam is scheduled for April 25.

Chief Assistant Prosecutor Mark Webb, who authorized the charges, said this was a case that did not have high priority with the staff short an attorney.

When deputies went to the trailer May 26, 2010, the stench of cat urine and feces rolled out of the widows of a single-wide in the Cambridge trailer park, reports say.

Most of the cats were found in poor condition — infested with fleas and some with ear infections. A dozen were hospitalized at a Tekonsha veterinarian hospital.

The deputies who served the warrants found 32 cats at the location last Wednesday, too. Some of them appeared to be in poor health.

Crocker told Judge Weigle that Child Protective Services had removed the couple’s 3-year-old child and he needed to be out to try to regain custody.

Dann, Crocker and his ex-wife have been raising and selling the Maine Coon and similar breeds on the Internet for several years. The cats had been sold for about $350.
