Woman accused of animal cruelty
Police find two malnourished dogs
LAREDO, Tex. (KGNS) - Laredo police and animal care services responded to a cruelty to animals call at the 4500 block of Christine Lane last Thursday.
At the scene, police found a grey pit bull that was chained up by the front of the residence and a black Doberman in the backyard.
Both dogs were found to be malnourished and trembling due to the cold weather.
The owner of the two dogs, 67-year-old Irma Sanchez, was charged with two counts of cruelty to non-livestock animals.
She faces up to one year in jail, a $4,000 fine, or both.
