CANTON, Ohio — An Ohio woman has been charged, accused by police of keeping two starving dogs locked in the same cage.
Police said Jessica Swineheart of Canton kept a German shepherd-mix locked in the same cage with a beagle, WJW reported.
When the beagle died, police alleged the other dog ate it to survive.
Police said they found the larger dog, which had lost about two-thirds of its body weight, still in the cage with the other animal's remains, according to WJW.
Police did not state how long the animals had been caged together, the Repository reported.
