SPCA Supervisor Arrested For Animal Cruelty in Texas

I hope this woman rots in jail, but I doubt that will happen in Texas.
Authorities found the dog, a German shepherd mix named Bruce, in a small crate on March 18. They arrived after neighbors complained of a strong smell emanating from Martin's apartment in the 2800 block of Townbluff Drive in Plano.

The crate was in a dark closet that functioned as a laundry room and had flooded, according to the affidavit. Police say Bruce was emaciated in a puddle of water and his own feces. They described the stench as "overwhelming."
Apparently she was running out of money so she left the puppy in a crate in her laundry room to slowly starve to death. Oh, and when they shut the electricity off, she moved into a hotel room without the dog.

Mr. Barky,

The conduct of this self-absorbed and thoughtless woman was completely and utterly unacceptable, and I have complete empathy the extent of your feelings of anger with respect to this matter.

That said, I do feel inclined to respectfully disagree with your first comment, and whilst I, too, hope that she is made to serve a prison term of some description, I would much rather see her get herself together and come to understand the need for responsible behavior toward animals as opposed to simply 'rotting' in jail.
