A woman has been charged with starving two dogs causing one canine to eat the other.
Jessica Swinehart, 25, of Canton, Ohio, allegedly starved a German shepherd and a beagle in a cage according to court records obtained by News 5 Cleveland.
The court records state Swinehart placed the animals in a cage on April 5 and didn’t feed them.
As a result of starvation, the beagle died and the German shepherd ate its body.
The German shepherd was said to have lost two-thirds of its body weight.
Swinehart was arrested on April 8. The 25-year-old has been charged with two counts of prohibitions concerning companion animals.
A court date for her is pending.
