Two Dogs Are Bound And Drowned in North Jonesboro Pond

August 31, 2006 - Posted at 10:00 pm CDT

JONESBORO, AR - "It's appalling."

Wannda Turner of Northeast Arkansans for Animals says there were two dogs, both tied with wire. That wire was attached to a cinder block and then the dogs were thrown into a pond and drowned.

It happened on the North side of Jonesboro on Prescott Lane. The police report states the dogs "were weighted down to cause drowning" and there were "no other apparent signs" of death.

The owner of the property is William Barber. Even though the crime happened on his property, police say he is not a suspect. Wannda Turner says if they get enough evidence to make an arrest, her organization will prosecute to the fullest extent of the law. That, according to Jonesboro City Attorney Phillip Crego means the most severe punishment that can be handed down for cruelty to animals is a one thousand dollar fine and a year in jail.
