DAYTON — One man faces seven counts of animal cruelty for the rancid conditions he was keeping his pit bull and her six puppies.

Dayton police officers were dispatched to the home of Michael Alan Cornett on a complaint that a door was left open at the residence, according to the police report.

Officers entered the home in the 400 block of Santa Cruz and started examining the conditions of the residence.

In the garage police found a black and white pit bull before entering the home to find the kitchen and the majority of the house filled with dog feces and garbage, according to the report.

The report also stated “it smelled like ammonia or animal urine and dog feces inside the home.”

In one of the bedrooms inside of the home police uncovered a cage containing six puppies.

“The cage had a urine soaked sheet at the bottom of it,” according to the report. “The puppies all were howling and jumping up on the side of the cage. There was no bowl of water and no food inside of the cage for the puppies.”

Animal control responded to the residence and Cornett said he would willingly give up the mother and her six puppies but wanted to keep a black and white pit bull that officers had seen in the garage. “WTF…surely this cold hearted shit, shouldn’t be allowed to own animals ever again…I just don’t get this legal system???”

Cornett received two citations for failure to license his dogs from animal control. The mother dog’s ribs and hip bones were protruding and she appeared malnourished. The puppies suffered from dehydration, said police.

Dog Owner Claims Winn. Co. Animal Control Abused Her Dog – Video

When Stephanie Sterling picked her dog Onyx up from Winnebago County Animal Control this month, she couldn’t believe her eyes.

“She had lost so much blood, she was bleeding from everywhere,” Sterling says.

It all started back in April, when Onyx, a pit bull mix, ran from her yard and bit a woman in the leg.

“I was in tears, I was hysterical, I don’t know what happened to her that day.”

Animal Control took her for the next two weeks.

“She’s never bitten anybody. I didn’t know what was gonna happen.”

Whatever happened wasn’t pretty. Onyx had lesions all over her body, lost a toe, had to have surgery on her leg, and was badly malnourished.

“If I hadn’t of picked her up that day, I think if I had waited one more day she would’ve been dead.”

Animal control’s records show they examined the dog four times in two weeks. But they said everything was normal even though they noted the dog was covered in blood clots and dried blood.

Animal control says they don’t think they did anything wrong. But they have agreed to pay $1700 for one of the dog’s hefty medical bills.

And they dropped the dangerous dog investigation against Onyx. They say they will investigate whether the dog was mistreated if they need to, but at this point they feel all actions were appropriate.

Sometimes dogs just hurt themselves when they are caged, and their veterinarian didn’t see anything wrong with the dog.

A Rock Hill woman was arrested Tuesday in the alleged abuse of her pit bull.

33-year-old Tonya Lortay Taylor of Chestnut Street was charged with cruelty to animals Tuesday following a January incident where officers received an anonymous call about a dog that was being mistreated.

Officers found a tan and white pit bull tied up behind the woman’s apartment with dirty water in its bowl and a makeshift leash.

The police report from January says the reporting officer could feel the bones in the dog’s back sides and shoulders.

Warrants were issued for Taylor and 48-year-old Charles Hall. Animal Control officials deemed the residence unfit for a pet
