Tallahassee man charge with multiple counts of animal cruelty
According to the Tallahassee Democrat, the seizure of thirty-two malnourished pit bull mixes on Monday is straining the resources of the Tallahassee-Leon Community Animal Service Center. "It was the worst animal-cruelty case in about a year, said Jeff Doyle, supervisor of Animal Control for the city." The suspect was arrested on 31 counts of baiting or fighting an animal, 27 counts of depriving or mutilating an animal, and four drug-related charges. An earlier version of the story available here.
