PARAGOULD, AR (KAIT) -

District County Judge Dan Stidham found probable cause to charge a Paragould woman with animal cruelty after police say they found her dog suffering from “deep sores and wounds all over its back.”

Officers arrested Tanya Taylor, 34, on Friday, Aug. 19, while investigating complaints of animal cruelty in the 800-block of North 10th Avenue.

According to the probable cause affidavit, an animal control officer found a small dog “tied so close to a post on the porch” that it could not move.

The dog had deep sores and wounds all over its back, the court documents stated, and “the hair was completely peeled down to the skin.”

Animal control took the dog to a local veterinarian who euthanized it due to its “extremely poor condition.”

Taylor is being held at the Greene County Jail in lieu of a $5,000 cash-only bond. Stidham also ordered Taylor to have “no contact with any animal.”

    Considering that the University of Central Arkansas mascot is a bear, it was only natural that one should be found less than a mile from campus.
