Charges pending after officers find abused dogs at home



Published: Mon, October 28, 2013 @ 2:48 p.m.

YOUNGSTOWN — Charges are pending after humane agents with Animal Charity found two emaciated dogs at a 131 E. Lucius Ave. home, including a terrier mix that had its mouth taped shut.

Humane Agent Christopher Flak said he has never seen a dog with taped in such a manner.

Agents got an anonymous tip that led them to the home. The dogs were in the backyard chained to the garage and their ribs are showing.

A man at the home did not come out for several minutes until agents removed the dogs in the back.

I read somewhere they do this to train the pit bulls for fighting. They tape the mouth shut so there is no risk of injury to the pit. I can never understand why people are cruel to dogs (or any animals). Chain the guy in the garage with his mouth taped shut and let the pits go at it with him.

The penalties for that kind of sadism are not severe enough- misdemeanors. They should be felonies- maybe that would start sending a message.
