NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. (AP) — A Southern California lady who allegedly deserted a canine with a forty two-pound cancerous tumor has been charged with life-threatening animal abuse and neglect.
Sherri Haughton of Newport Coast was charged Wednesday with 4 misdemeanors that carry a possible two-yr jail sentence.
A name to a lady of that identify wasn’t answered Wednesday night time.
Orange County prosecutors say Haughton dropped off her 7-yr-previous golden retriever, Henry, at an animal hospital in Might and claimed she’d discovered him on a seashore.
Earlier than it was eliminated, Henry’s abdomen tumor had almost doubled his physique weight. He’s now dwelling with a foster household and receiving most cancers remedy.
Officers say house owners who can’t afford to deal with their pets can flip them over to animal management or welfare businesses, which may foot the invoice.
