Arrest for suspected animal cruelty
Liberty County Sheriff's blotter for Sept. 12

Recent reports filed with the Liberty County Sheriff's office included:

Aug. 23
Aggravated cruelty to animals — A deputy responded to assist Liberty Animal Control at a home on Bill Carter Road. Animal Control had received information about an injured dog and discovered a small mixed breed with an inch-wide and 2-inch-deep laceration on its neck. The homeowner said someone had dropped the dog off at her door a month earlier.
During the investigation, the deputy found evidence suggesting the dog was kept tied by a thin cable at the side of the house with no visible food or water.  Within a few feet of the pole was a hole that extended 2-3 feet underground. Inside the top of the hole, the deputy found visible claw marks.
The woman was arrested, and the dog was given to Carpathia Paws for care.
Matter of record — Two sisters got into a fight over what they later called silly things.
The foster parents called police to calm the situation and said they would separate the two girls until they could figure out what the fight was about.
