TEXAS -- A woman has been arrested on an animal cruelty charge after a severely malnourished young pit bull was found by local authorities.
Yesenia Garza, 37, was charged Wednesday with cruelty to non-livestock animals, failure to provide care at about 5:30 p.m. in the 6400 block of Saguero Lane.
Laredo Animal Control had called police to notify them of an animal cruelty case on Saguero in East Laredo. LPD reports state that a pit bull had no food and “little to no water,” according to police.
Investigator Joe E. Baeza, LPD spokesman, said officers “could see the dog’s bones (protruding) through his skin.”
