Metro Animal Services, LMPD investigating animal cruelty cases
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville Metro Animal Services and Louisville Metro Police are looking for information on three cases of animal cruelty.
During a press conference Wednesday afternoon, authorities outlined the three cases summarized below.
On Aug. 10, officials found three dead dogs in a home in the 6800 block of Manslick Road, near Iroquois Parkway. Officers were barely able to approach the property, due to severe flea infestation. A Metro Animal Services official tells WDRB that Kelly Stice has been arrested. She faces several charges, including three felony counts of torturing a dog.
On Aug. 22, a citizen reported an injured dog in the 1900 block of Shepherdsville Road, near Bashford Avenue. When authorities arrived, they found a pit bull in the bushes crying out in pain and unable to walk. Investigators say the pit bull had been burned.
On Aug. 14, a good Samaritan recovered a beagle named Autumn that was found in the 4100 block of Greenwood Avenue near south 41st Street. The beagle had a collar severely embedded into its neck. She survived the ordeal, and No Kill Louisville and the Hope Foundation are paying her medical bills. She is now in the care of the Shelby County Humane Society and will be up for adoption soon.
Anyone with information on any of the last two cases is asked to call Louisville Metro Animal Services at 574-5399.
The U.S. Humane Society is offering $2,500 rewards in each of the three cases. The reward will be given to anyone providing information leading to the arrest and conviction of anyone responsible for the abuse.
