Here’s an update from Metro Animal Services:
August 10, 2011: A neighbor called LMAS to file a complaint on an address in the 6800 block of Manslick Road. Officers were barely able to approach the property due to flea infestation. A search warrant was executed and three deceased dogs were found in the residence. Kelly Stice is now wanted on three felony counts for torture of a dog and three misdemeanor counts of animal cruelty. It is believed the suspect abandoned three dogs in a residence for up to six weeks without any care allegedly causing their death.
August 22, 2011: A caring citizen called LMAS about an injured dog on the 1900 block of Shepherdsville Road. Officers found the grayish/brown pitbull in the bushes in horrendous condition, screaming in pain and unable to walk. Skin was detached from the mouth, paws and legs. Blood was extreme around the dog’s eyes, the lips were torn and there was what appeared to be severe bruising near the back legs. For humane reasons, the pitbull was euthanized. Preliminary Necropsy tests from the University of Kentucky Diagnostic Lab show burns on the front half of the animal.
August 24, 2011: A Good Samaritan brought a brown/white female beagle into LMAS’ Manslick location. The beagle was found on the 4100 block of Greenwood Ave. She had a severely embedded collar duck taped around her neck. No Kill Louisville immediately offered to help by paying the veterinarian bills. Shelby County Humane Society has taken over medical and foster care. Thanks to amazing team-work, the beagle is doing well in foster care.
If you have information leading to the arrest/conviction in any of the three cases, please call Metro Animal Services at 502-574-5399. The Humane Society of the United States is assisting by offering a $2,500 reward for all three cases.
Here’s hoping the HSUS will throw similar amounts of money at LMAS to pay for animal food.
