Palmyra couple charged with Animal Cruelty
- Updated: October 28, 2012
Following an investigation and the seizure of a dog on September 20th, the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office reported the arrest on Wednesday (10/24) of Christina Mulcahy, age 21 and Kyle Jopson, age 26, both of 2666 Lyon Road in the Town of Palmyra for Cruelty to an Animal.
Animal Abuse Investigator Tom Littlefield seized a dog that was severely underweight. The brown lab, named Hershey, was severely emaciated. “The dog was literally a skeleton, nothing but skin over bones,” said Littlefield.
The dog was taken to the Humane Society of Wayne County. “Over a period of 13 days, the dog gained 25.3 pounds,” added the Investigator. He also told Mulcahy to take another dog to a veterinarian to assess its condition. He also questioned the condition of horses that were being boarded at the farm. Since the initial investigation, the owners of two of the horses have removed their animals from Mulcahy and Jopson’s care.
Littlefield said “Hershey” has now been adopted by a loving family and is doing very well. “There was no reason that dog was not fed.”
Mulcahy and Jopson were released on appearance tickets to appear in Palmyra Town Court. The investigation is continuing.
