“WTF…These people make me want to fxxxxxg puke! Yet again, prior offences for animal cruelty…FFS…WHEN WILL THE JUDICIAL SYSTEM REALISE THAT IF YOU COMMIT ANIMAL ABUSE ONCE, YOUR GOING TO DO IT AGAIN…& IT WILL GET WORSE AS THE PSYCHE OF THESE BASTARDS THINK THEY ARE DOING NOTHING WRONG…THEY ENJOY SEEING ANOTHER PET OR PERSON, CONSIDERED LOWER THAN THEMSELVES…IN PAIN!!!” (I can’t find an update of the preliminary hearing, sorry)

UPPER DARBY — The owner of a small black poodle is facing charges after the dog had to be euthanized because of its poor physical condition, police said.

The dog’s owner, Melissa Lewis, 21, of the 500 block of Timberlake Road, Upper Darby, was arrested and charged with cruelty to animals and related offences for allegedly starving the canine.

“Initially, she said the dog was a stray and followed her home,” police Superintendent Michael Chitwood said. “In reality, the animal warden had been to her home for prior cruelty investigations involving dogs. One of the dogs was a small black poodle so she was not truthful. She abused the dog and caused the dog’s death. It was severely malnourished and underweight with feces-matted fur.

Obviously, this woman should not have control of any animal. This time the dog was having seizures.”

Animal Warden Fred Eckman was called and transported the dog to the Keystone Veterinary Emergency Hospital in Havertown, where the dog suffered additional seizures.

The treating veterinarian recommended the dog be euthanized due to its very poor condition,” Chitwood said.

Eckman transported the poodle to the Delaware County SPCA for a necropsy.

“The veterinarian related that the dog was severely malnourished, underweight and obviously neglected,” Chitwood said. “The veterinarian added that the dog’s seizures could have been triggered by starvation.”

Lewis surrendered to police on Thursday and was arraigned on charges of cruelty to animals, false reports to law enforcement, theft by deception and failure to obtain registration for the dog.

She was released on $20,000 unsecured bail pending a preliminary hearing March 12 in district court.

Detectives have said that they are dealing with a “vast amount of forensic analysis” but have made it clear that this alone will not solve the case and that help from the public is crucial.

The appeal came as Prime Minister David Cameron issued a heartfelt appeal for information.

He said: “My heart just goes out to April’s family.

“This is every family’s nightmare, having this happen and the fact that she suffers from cerebral palsy, something I know a little about from my own children, only makes this worse.

“My appeal would be to everyone, if you know anything, if you saw anything, heard anything, have any ideas you can bring forward, talk to the police, help this family find their lovely child.”

Bridger is due to be interviewed again today with police still trying to piece together his movements around the time of Jones’ disappeared.
