Charges to be considered against owner that sprayed Raid on dogs

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Lubbock County Sheriff Kelly Rowe tells KCBD that charges will now be considered against the owner of several dogs kenneled in south Lubbock County.  The review follows our report Wednesday night, where we caught the owner spraying Raid insecticide on the dogs.

Neighbors first contacted us last month, with concerns about the animals' welfare. When we went to check it out, we found feces covering the kennel floor, dirty water, and dogs chained so they could barely reach food.

At that time, authorities told us they'd looked into the issue, but no charges had been filed. On our return visit, Wednesday, conditions had improved.

Sheriff Rowe tells us the owner is cooperating with them, and has continued to make improvements, but Rowe says our story Wednesday night led investigators to submit the new information to the Lubbock County District Attorney for consideration.

"He does continue to demonstrate a lack of knowledge on the proper care of those types of animals," Rowe said.  Rowe says the D.A. will present the findings to a grand jury, and they will decide if charges should be filed.
