Re: Brooksville Man Charged with Animal Cruelty
Date: December 28, 2016
"On 12-21-2016 at 2:20 p.m., a Hernando County Sheriff’s Office Animal Enforcement Officer responded to the 800 block of Leonard Street in Brooksville in reference to a report of a dog bite.
The caller stated he was bitten by a pit bull that was running loose in the neighborhood.
The officer was able to determine the owner of the dog, Deandre Goodson, B/M DOB/2-20-1995"

The officer made contact with the homeowner, who stated that Goodson cared for all the dogs living on the property.
The homeowner gave law enforcement permission to search the property.
Once in the backyard the officer noted three pit bulls, two of which were on heavy chains and did not appear to have any water.
A third pit bull, a female named Chi Chi, was found on the side of the house and appeared to be in distress. The officer noted the dog appeared malnourished and had extensive scaring on her face and on the front of her body.
The dog was unable to walk under its own power. The officer also noted the dog’s ears appeared to be mutilated and healed over.
The homeowner noted in December the dog had puppies and had eaten them. Deputies received permission to remove the dog from the property.
The dog was transported to Animal Services for immediate medical attention. Upon examination, the veterinarian said the dog had numerous injuries and was suffering from neglect.
Authorities were able to contact Goodson by phone who agreed to meet deputies at the Hernando County Animal Services offices in Brooksville.
Goodson told deputies a friend, Breon Wyatt, had given him the dog about a year ago. He indicated the dog got out of the yard a couple of months ago and he had only recently found Chi Chi and brought her back home. Goodson confirmed Chi Chi gave birth to two puppies about two week ago, but had eaten them.
Goodson said he feeds Chi Chi regularly and wasn’t sure why the dog was so skinny. He also stated the dog’s injuries were the result of the other two dogs attacking her. Goodson said he chose not to seek treatment for the injured dog."

So we take my moms dog Tank and my dog Willie to a pet lodge while on vacation and come back to them both in bad condition. Both of them came home with very high fevers. Willie: fever, diarrhea, limping & a huge cut on his bottom making him bleed.  Tank poor Tank had an allergic reaction to something & a mix of hot spots which has made him lethargic. I am so upset that this was their first experience away from home. Never again!  

Hayes, David

"One-year-old Sparkles couldn’t reach her water bowl. The pit bull was tied to a wooden box, or a hot box, in February outside a Riviera Beach home, Palm Beach County Animal Care and Control officials said.
She was slowly starving to death, a veterinarian determined.
The man tasked with caring for her, David Hayes, was arrested Tuesday on animal-cruelty charges, jail records show."

Dyke, Carroll

"A Chesterfield man can never own a pet again. 66-year-old Carroll Dyke now faces community service and must pay a fine for the death of his dog. Back in October, a neighbor found Dyke's dog dead shortly after contacting NBC12 about his condition."

Davis, Teresa Rai

Teresa Rai Davis, a "northern Idaho woman charged with animal cruelty has pleaded not guilty."

"A criminal complaint says the horses were either unsheltered or kept in unsanitary conditions, and were not given enough food or water."
