Man Arrested for Animal Cruelty after Skinny Dogs Found

Posted: Updated:

Tulsa Police arrested a man Wednesday after reportedly discovering neglected dogs in a cage in his home.

Police were responding to the 2500 block of West Iola Street in order to check an odor. Officers reported a strong odor when arriving on scene, and they believed a dead person was inside, because there was a week's worth of mail in the mailbox and the lawn had not recently been cut.

Upon entering, officers found two dogs in their cages covered in feces. Police report one of the dogs was so skinny that his ribs were easily visible.

The owner arrived at the residence an hour after police and said he had not been at the house for over a week.

Animal Control verified it as animal cruelty and the suspect, Kevin McDonald, 29, was booked into Tulsa County Jail. His bond was set at $8,000.
