JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

Jonesboro Animal Control is investigating a case of cruelty after finding two dogs left to starve.

Tuesday afternoon Officer Jeff Moore responded to a call in the 4200-block of Sage Meadows Boulevard.

A neighbor who called in the report met Moore at the address and directed him to the backyard where the officer found a “small dog lying motionless on the ground,” his report stated.

The “very emaciated” dog appeared to be struggling to breathe and did not respond to touch.

Moore entered the yard to retrieve the animal, then checked for other animals. He found another emaciated white dog on the back porch.

He retrieved both animals, placing the first dog in the passenger seat of his animal control vehicle, then left a door hanger at the suspect’s home.

While taking the animals to the veterinarian for treatment, the first dog stopped breathing and died.

The suspect is described as a 46-year-old woman. At this time she has not been cited or charged; however, she could face a misdemeanor cruelty to animals charge.
