Woman Who Left Dog Looking Like This Finally Faces The Music (Photo)

A Pennsylvania woman was arrested and charged with animal cruelty after authorities discovered her dog suffering from severe starvation.

Rocky the 10-month-old pit bull, was rescued earlier this month after being abandoned in an Erie, Pennsylvania basement. Rocky was reportedly severely emaciated and seemingly left for dead.

After a lengthy investigation, authorities arrested Angelique Miles, Rocky’s now-former owner, and charged her with animal cruelty, reports The Huffington Post.

“Cruelty to animals is the primary charge,” Erie police Lt. Stan Green said. “It was charged at a higher level misdemeanor.”

Miles was arraigned on April 25 and held on $10,000 bail, reports WICU. If convicted, Miles faces a two-year prison sentence and a number of fines.

A prison sentence, according to Green, depends on whether or not the woman has a prior arrest record.

“If she has no prior criminal history, serving prison time is not likely,” he said.

The director of the Erie-based The Anna Shelter, Ruth Thompson-Carroll, called for a revamp to Pennsylvania’s animal cruelty laws to ensure that Miles and other offenders receive the most deserved sentences.

“Pennsylvania animal laws are written by the Department of Agriculture, so they are geared toward farmers and are not like laws in California or New York,

where the penalties are a lot stiffer,” Carroll said. “Maybe this will rally people who want to make changes in Pennsylvania.”
