Comments Off on Women Charged In Dogs Death In Hot Car At Baltimore Hotel

“I bet she didn’t go for 19 hours without food or water whilst in the hotel. Stupid bxxxh should be banned from owning any further animals; if that’s how little she thinks of them!”

A 62-year-old woman from Virginia was arrested after police discovered two dogs which had been locked inside of her vehicle for 19 excruciating hours, reported Monday’s Baltimore Sun.

On Saturday, authorities were alerted to the presence of two dogs who were locked inside of Sharon Mulcahy‘s Ford Fusion, which was parked outside of a Best Western in a Baltimore, Md., suburb.

One of the dogs, a six-year-old poodle named “Missy,” was already dead by the time that the car was opened. The other dog, a 10-year-old poodle named “Bear,” was still alive and hiding beneath the steering column.

Temperatures on Saturday were hovering in the mid-90’s and the interior of the car was described as “scalding.” Mulcahy had left a window slightly cracked, but the outside temperatures were far too hot for the opening to be of any benefit.

According to the police report, Mulcahy had checked into the hotel around 8 p.m. on Friday, leaving her small dogs locked inside of the vehicle without any food or water.

Hotel employees noticed the dogs on Saturday afternoon and contacted the authorities.

Mulcahy was arrested and is facing six counts of animal cruelty and two counts of restraining a dog without shelter or food and water.

The surviving dog was taken to BARCS for care.

Comments Off on Elgin Man Charged With Animal Cruelty After 60 Dead Cats Found In Van

ELGIN, Ill. (CBS) – An Elgin resident faces four counts of misdemeanor animal cruelty, after authorities found 60 dead cats in a van in his driveway.

WBBM Newsradio’s John Waelti reports Employees of a city landscaping contractor noticed dozens of rotting cat carcasses inside the van Wednesday morning in the 200 block of Villa Street.

The homeowner, 60-year-old William Tinkler, was taken in for questioning, and later charged with four misdemeanor counts of animal cruelty, and five other misdemeanor violations of Elgin city codes. He bonded out of the Elgin City Jail Wednesday night, and is due back in court at 9 a.m. Nov. 2.

Police said, as the landscaping crew was removing brush on the block, workers noticed piles of cat carcasses inside a van parked in the home’s driveway.

Elgin Police Lt. Dan O’Shea said officers were called in to speak with Tinkler after the dead animals were found.

“He told them that he put what he thought was approximately 60 cat carcasses in his van, and possibly a dog or two, over the last couple months,” O’Shea said. “He also stated he currently had another dozen or so live cats.

Neighbors said the stench alone was unbearable.

“Oh, the smell is just terrible. See all of our kids are out here trying to play, and we can’t even have our kids out here in this area, because the smell was just terrible,” Janette Levy said.

Narweata Flowers said neighbors couldn’t even leave their windows open, because some of Tinkler’s cats might wander in.

“They comes in our window. We have to let our window down, because they comes and they pushed the screen out, and be in our house. So I used to have to just get them out every day,” she said.

Several of the live cats were captured and taken to an animal shelter for a wellness check. Officials hope to capture the other cats to have them checked out.

Neighbors believe Tinkler’s arrest might have been the only way to stop him from hoarding animals.

“I’m just glad they got rid of the cats, because it was just ridiculous,” neighbor Shavon Patrick said.

Tinkler has been given 24 hours to clean up his home before it gets tagged as unlivable.

Man stealing, mutilating cats caught

Comments Off on Man stealing, mutilating cats caught

MESA, Ariz. – A man who allegedly terrorized a Mesa neighborhood for weeks by abducting and killing their cats is finally in police custody.

The suspect, 39-year-old Scott Andrew Graham, is accused of stealing and mutilating cats in a Mesa neighborhood. 

Graham is charged with theft, mistreatment of animals and two counts of cruelty to animals.

Neighbour Ben Smith spotted a suspicious vehicle Monday night that he had seen in the neighborhood before, and decided to follow it and get its license plate number, police said.

A patrol officer found the home that the car was registered to and found out the suspect lives in the home with relatives, but he was not there at the time. When Graham returned home, he admitted to officers that he had taken 30 to 40 cats from the area. He denied harming the cats, he told police he only played with them and released them somewhere else.

Based on evidence at the home and in Graham’s vehicle, and surveillance video from the neighborhood, police found probable cause to arrest him.

Back on August 8, surveillance video showed a figure snatching a cat perched on his owner’s SUV. The cat was found killed days later. More and more cats continued to disappear in the neighborhood.

Trish Ferguson’s cat Lil Bit went missing in April.

“That is unbelievable, and just knowing he probably tortured her. It’s not fair it’s not right… it’s been very difficult, she was our baby she was part of the family.

As more and more cats went missing and neighbors had suspicions there was foul play, neighbourhood block watch captain Ben Smith knew something had to be done.

The past three weeks me and a couple of neighbors have been patrolling all hours of the night,” says Smith. Monday night, the patrols paid off.

Turns out that Smith saw the suspect and his vehicle in the neighborhood while on his bicycle once before, but the suspect threw a cat out the window and got away.

According to court paperwork, the evidence that police found in Graham’s vehicle was cat hair, blood, and the trunk smelled of “dead animal.”

After dog dies in his hot car, owner smiles in booking mug

Comments Off on After dog dies in his hot car, owner smiles in booking mug

Bill Omer (Galveston PD)

“What a low life scum bag. Glad he thinks it’s funny that his dog died of heat exhaustion…wonder if he will be giving it the thumbs up when the judge sends him to prison…or when people shun him because his stupid face is plastered all over the internet…one can but hope!”

A smiling Houston man — facing cruelty charges after his pet dog died in Galveston on July 4 when he left it in a sweltering vehicle, Galveston Police say — posed shirtless in his booking mug, giving the thumbs-up sign.

Bill Omer, 23, a student, has been charged with cruelty to a non-livestock animal, and was released from custody after posting $15,000 bail, said GPD Lt. Michael Gray.

Omer faces up to two years in prison and a $10,000 fine if found guilty of the felony offense.

Officers arrived at the vehicle in the 3100 block of Avenue S about 6:40 p.m. and found Omer holding the lifeless pit bull, Gray said.

The dog apparently died of heat exhaustion from being inside the unattended vehicle for about an hour and half.

Omer was in Galveston to celebrate the Fourth of July, Gray said.

As temperatures hit 91 on the island, the heat inside the vehicle was another story, according to Gray.

Animals cannot be left in vehicles for any amount of time,” he said. “Cracking the window does not help. It can reach up to 120 degrees in a short amount of time.

“It’s just like leaving a child in the vehicle,” Gray said. “The longer they’re in there, the higher the chance of serious injury or death. A vehicle is an oven in the heat.”

Four arrested on animal abuse charges

Comments Off on Four arrested on animal abuse charges

Troutdale police arrested four people on animal abuse charges Monday evening, May 21, after they allegedly left their dog on a leash tied to the handle of their Jeep’s passenger door and dragged it 600 feet through a truck stop parking lot.

A witness who was at a restaurant in the 700 block of Northwest Frontage Road told The Outlook she saw the Jeep and the pitbull, which was trying to keep up with the speed of the Jeep as it drove through the parking lot.

The witness said the Jeep stopped and a passenger, who had a snake wrapped around his neck, got out. The passenger took the dog off the leash and put it in the Jeep.

The witness said the Jeep’s occupants sat in the parking lot and tried to wash the blood off of the dog’s bloody paws and put socks on them. Several bystanders tried to help them, she said.

The witness said a female passenger seemed upset and distraught about the dog.

The witness said she called police at 8:12 pm

When police arrived they found the pitbull mix, Rhino, bleeding heavily from his paws. A veterinary exam found that Rhino lost most of his footpads and nails.

Police said the dog’s leash was tied to the Jeep’s passenger-side door in the parking lot next to McDonald’s before the Jeep drove to the truck stop. The suspects reportedly told police that they had forgotten about the dog being tied up before they drove away.

The dog’s owner, 20-year-old Launa Jean Dickerson of Portland, reportedly purchased the dog from Craigslist about two weeks ago. Police said Dickerson initially refused to have her dog treated.

Officers eventually took Rhino to a 24-hour veterinary clinic in East Portland. Rhino was treated overnight and was picked up by Multnomah County Animal Services, which has him in safe custody.

Police arrested Dickerson and Allen Michael Cook, 20, of Portland; Nicholas A. Falkenhagen, 21, of Milwaukie; and Justin Edward Rinde, 21, of Portland.

Police said all four suspects are living out of the vehicle, a green 1992 Jeep Cherokee. Police also recovered a rabbit, two kittens, a hamster and a snake, which were taken into custody by animal control.

All four suspects were lodged at the Multnomah County Detention Center. Dickerson was later released on her own recognizance.
