She no longer wanted the dog, so she just stopped feeding it
State Police out of Wolcott received a report of a pit bull showing up on a neighbor’s property with its ribs sticking out and a festered sore and scar on his head on Sunday (10/29).
Troopers found the dog and the owner, Jessica L. Goodrich, age 34, of 4380 Wolcott Spring Lake Road in the Town of Butler.
“I don’t want the dog. I am trying to get rid of it,” was Goodrich’s comment to the trooper.
Goodrich was subsequently arrested for Animal Abuse: Torture/Injure/Not Feed an Animal under the State Agriculture and Markets Law. She was released on an appearance ticket for Butler Town Court on November 15th.
The dog, Rosa, was taken to a veterinarian and treated for worms and its injuries then the Humane Society of Wayne County.
