Prosecutors say two people in Valley Grande have been charged with animal cruelty. Fourth Judicial Circuit District Attorney Michael Jackson said that 26-year-old Caroline Dunnam and 23-year-old Andrew Parrish are each accused of hanging a small mixed breed puppy by its neck from the ceiling. Investigators said they received a tip about the dog after a photo of the puppy dangling by its neck from the ceiling was posted on Facebook.
Dunnam and Parrish surrendered to authorities on Jan. 10TH and are now free on $500 bond each. The puppy survived the ordeal and has been turned over to animal control.
