Dog’s cries in the freezing cold leads to charges against owners

The sound of a dog’s cries has resulted in charges against two people in Steelton, Pennsylvania. According to the Steelton Borough Police Department, officers who responded after multiple calls were received from concerned neighbors, found a husky, outside on a chain in 13-degree weather, at a residence on the 300 block of Lincoln Street.

The dog in question did not have any shelter, or access to food or water. When the officers questioned the residents at the home, they were uncooperative and refused to give their names. The dog’s owners have been identified as Ivan Bailey and Catherine Shoenberger – they are facing multiple charges including: (Libre’s Law) Cruelty to Animals; Neglect of an Animal; Failure to have dog vaccinated; Failutre to have dog registered.

The neighbors in this situation are to be commended – the authorities have encouraged people, across the nation, to reach out for help if they fear that a pet is in danger from the cold. Sadly, dogs continue to perish as the bitter cold continues to grip many areas.

    His eyes look like he has no compassion for anything but himself. I hope they get locked away for a long time because neither of them don’t have common sense and should not be allowed to breathe air on this planet. So glad the neighbors spoke up and kept speaking up! Well done!

    Make the two stay outside with the same conditions that the dog was made to live in. Only fair. Good enough for the dog it darn sure is good enough for them Make the punishment severe enough that these Cretans will think twice about their actions.

    These morons need a good kick in the butt! Throw the dirtbags in the slammer and keep them locked up until they rot. Because of
    compassionate neighbors, this dog is safe and out of the cold. There are still good people in this world.

    Sounds like this dog was being “well” taken care of. Chained in the cold without shelter, food, water and no vaccinations! What were they doing with a dog to begin with? I hope they receive more than just a slap on the wrist!

    He looks like the typical piece of human excrement that abuses animals. His eyes are soulless and empty. He probably beats his wife/girlfriend and would likely leave his kids outside in the cold without shelter if they didn’t behave. Let’s hope he never has any kids and that he is never allowed to have anymore animals. Bless the neighbours who spoke up and got this pice of garbage and his partner arrested! I hope the poor dog gets a new–and better–home.

    This guy even looks heartless. Thank you to the heroes who called and were literally the voice of this dog. Thank you to the police who took this seriously and saw what disgusting people they are to do this and then to give the cops a hard time. Yep, they have problems.

    Two crack addicts whose only concern is the pipe – I hope both Ivan Bailey and Catherine Schoenberger get a real dose of brutality in jail – may they become the objects of continued brutalization – they are two useless wastes of flesh and blood and deserve all the cruelty dealt to them – white punks in jail are great objects of brutal treatment – hope they both get a massive dose of it.
