No charges will be filed after a frozen dog was found in a cage which was abandoned near a river in Marion, Indiana. According to Fox 59 News, the female dog, who was pregnant, was discovered on January 3 near River Blvd. and Vine Street – she was inside of a dog cage that had been covered in a blanket.

The dog, whose name was Lady, had been left with a bowl of food – the owners of Lady were identified and questioned, but charges will not be filed because a necropsy on the dog’s body were inconclusive. The people who had custody of the dog prior to her death claim that she died at home and they asked someone to get rid of her…no explanation as to why a bowl of food had been left with a dead dog.

On Friday, the Marion-Grant County Humane Society, which had been hoping for justice for the deceased dog, expressed disappointment over the lack of charges:

“The results of the necropsy has been a huge disappointment to all of us. We want everyone to know that when the appointment was made to take Lady to Purdue, Purdue was well aware of the reason we were requesting the necropsy on Lady and the circumstances surrounding her death. Never did Purdue make anyone aware of the fact that hypothermia could not be determined as a cause of death in an animal.
Most of us believe that Lady was put in that cage alive and froze to death, nothing is going to change that but it can’t be proven, therefore, no charges will be filed. Once again an animal pays with their life at the hands of a cruel, malicious human.
We are so sorry Lady.”

      My thoughts exactly. Hopefully the owner(s) will be put on a DNA list. You don’t dispose of a dog by dumping it in a crate along a road. And, you don’t leave a living dog like that. Something is fishy and I’m sure in time the real truth will come out. That this dog was pregnant really upsets me. She should have been spayed before being adopted out. I wonder if the owners just didn’t want to deal with the puppies….

    Right. She was already dead, so they abandoned her out there with a bowl of food.

    Makes perfect sense to me.

    This is so wrong! File charges and see if you can convict these monsters, DAMN IT!!!!!

    They should be charged with SOMETHING! It’s not rocket science that dead dogs are not left with a bowl of food these people need to use common sense. They should be charged with abandonment of an animal or at the least littering. Just so someone knows Lady’s death was not for nothing.

    As everyone one here has said the same thing, “why leave a bowl of food for a dead dog”? Cruel and inhumane scum who did this to such a wonderful dog. May her memory haunt them forever and the rest of their lives are the worst it could possibly be for them. Karma to these owners.

    whether the poor dog was dead or alive in that cage, this sweet fur-baby was still abandoned. There was no reason to leave a dead dog in a cage and with food so that is the evidence.
    These monsters are getting away with and that is disgusting.

    Whether the dog was dead or not, these people were responsible for her “inconclusive necropsy” or not. If they had entrusted someone to “dispose” of her body, then identify the moron and charge them with dumping an animal like this. I don’t believe their story at all! They dumped that poor dog alive and some sort of charges need to be brought! Again a dog dies because of heartless owners!

TOO BAD THE DECISION MAKER WHO THINKS NOTHING OF THIS BULLSHIT WASN’T THROWN IN A CAGE ,THEN PLACED IN THE MIDDLE OF THE WOODS IN FREEZING WEATHER WHEN THEY WERE JUST BORN SO THEY CAN FREEZE TO DEATH. I HATE ALL THESE ANIMAL ABUSERS AND THE SCUMS WHO REFUSE TO GIVE JUSTICE TO THIS POOR ANIMAL.

    O for cripes sake – These human maggots disguised as ‘owners’ not charged – what a bunch of bullshit – when will these fucking authorities get a grip??? This happens over and over – people abuse, kill and dump animals like trash and are allowed to get away with it over and over. You don’t leave food w/a dead animal – Lady froze to death and the authorities are sitting there brain dead and doing nothing. She suffered due to cruel humans and they get to walk away laughing. Indiana authorities are as dumb as doorknobs and they just proved it.

    No excuses. They intentionally abandoned this dog when she was alive. These dirtbags must be charged for animal cruelty and thrown in the slammer for a long time.

    I could shoot the owners and leave them in the woods to freeze to death. The authorities are just as cowardly and heartless as the killers.

    The original owner should be blamed for Lady’s death. He claims he couldn’t keep the dog so he gave her to his stepfather who hates his mom. Was he that brain dead not to realize not to give a loving object to someone that hates his family? Its obvious the legal system did not want to pursue the case bc they had pure evidence. Gage claims he gave lady to his stepdad on Christmas. His mom left his stepdad on same day, then early January Lady is found dead and frozen. Cmon idiots! On top of that, she was pregnant?? How hard is it to spay your dog??? SPCA offers cheap deals for spaying so obviously Gage was a terrible and neglectful owner. This dog had the worse fate and I am so sorry she had a terrible owner! Poor poor dog.
