Two Lowlife Dog Owners

NY Women Charger With Torturing Animals

A women named Sharon McDonough has been charged with forty two dead animals that were buried in her back yard she is now being held on bail after an initial arrest in November.

It was reported that some of the dead dogs had been tortured and had their mouths taped with duct tape. Some were even reported as being drowned.

I don’t know about you but if these charges are real, this is one sick lady.

The So Called Motorcycle Drag Racer Jake Silcox Abandons His Animals

This guy Jake Silcox moved out of his house in Sullivan County, Tenn. a month ago and just left his animals to fend for themselves. What a lowlife this guy is. A neighbor said he felt bad to see the animals with no food or water and brought the animals some food, since Jake wasn’t around to feed them.

The Animal Control Officer Aaron West has even been to Jakes house and even left a notice saying: The dogs are thin, need to be seen by a vet (ASAP)” and have No food/water.

I guess he can spend all his money on his bike, but he can’t feed his pets. How low can you get to just walk away from them? And to top it off his neighbor said that one of the dogs must have killed a llama and after telling Jake he finally shows up at a later date and moves the dead animal under a metal shed.

You couldn’t even have buried the poor thing. I hope the Judge throws the book at your butt.

Thanks for the post Phil, I also think that all home owners that abandon their pets should be charged too. We all know that it's just not right to walk out on your pets.

Two Sullivan County animal control officers have been charged with animal abuse.

Thirty-one-year-old Douglas Aaron West, of Bristol, Tenn., and Steven F. Ward, 51, of Kingsport, were arrested Tuesday and charged with two misdemeanor counts of cruelty to animals.

The grand jury handed down the charges March 20.

The alleged abuse took place between April 11-22 2011, according to court documents, and occurred at the county- run animal shelter, which is now operated by a private organization.

Sullivan County Assistant District Attorney Julie Canter said the investigation began in November. She would not discuss specifics about the case.

The court documents states that Ward and West “did unlawfully, intentionally and knowingly torture an animal.”

West and Ward both posted $10,000 bonds and were released from the county jail.

These guys have no right to point fingers at anyone... SHAME!!
