Dog Bite Case Uncovers Animal Abuse Near New Orleans

Posted on October 29th, 2012 No Comments

A 33-year-old Gretna woman was taken into custody and charged with aggravated animal abuse after a dog bite investigation uncovered her abusive activity.

Animal control officers were responding to a dog bite case in September at a home in Gretna, Louisiana when they discovered three canines living in unsanitary conditions. The animals had injuries from ropes, and no water or food at their disposal. Two of the dogs, a pit bull and a mixed breed, were chained in the backyard of the home. The third dog was kept inside the residence.

The officers learned that a broken window in the home was utilized by one of the canines to free himself. That dog, along with the pit bull, escaped the home and ran rampant in the neighborhood. The dogs were loose in the neighborhood when they brutally attacked a female neighbor. The woman required medical attention for her dog bites.

After the attack, both canines returned to the home with one of them jumping back through the broken window. Officers were able to locate the owner of the animals, and placed her under arrest for animal cruelty. She claims that she had nowhere else to put the animals at the time. Her bond was set at $5,500.

The animal control officers held the dangerous dogs for 30 days. Their owner did not claim them after those 30 days, therefore both of the dogs were euthanized.
