January 17th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

Authorities in Page County have filed a charge of Animal Cruelty and/or Neglect, against a Clarinda woman. Sheriff’ Lyle Palmer says 43-year old Tammy Davis was charged following an investigation into a complaint about dogs being neglected at 1493 N Avenue, about one-mile southwest of Bethesda, in rural Page County.

When members of the Page County Sheriff’s Office went to investigate the complaint, Palmer says it became clear to them that two mixed-breed dogs which were seized, were emaciated, with no muscle or fat on their skeletons. The dogs were also likely dehydrated, according to the Sheriff.

The animals were brought to a local veterinarian, where they received care and are said to be showing signs of improvement. An investigation into their neglect is ongoing, as authorities continue to monitor the dogs’ conditions.
