Man Accused of Starving Dog Faces Charge of Aggravated Animal Cruelty


According to Friday's My News 13, a man near Winter Park, Florida, is facing a charge of aggravated animal cruelty for allegedly starving a pit bull.

An emaciated dog named "Zola," was rescued from 22-year-old Aaron Dennis' apartment on Thursday; authorities noted that the home was covered in urine and feces and the skeletal dog was unable to stand when they arrived. According to the Orlando Sentinel, a concerned neighbor contacted the authorities to report that a dog had been abandoned in Dennis' apartment.

Dennis told investigators that he had been out of town for a few days and did not know that the dog was sick.

Zola is currently in the custody of Orange County Animal Services and her prognosis for survival is unknown. Dennis was booked into jail.
