The crime

Chilson is accused of leaving two dogs inside of a house in the Town of Volney. According to the allegations, the dogs were left for extended periods of time inside of the hot house and they were not provided with “proper food and water.”

The conditions were so poor that one of the dogs passed away. The fate of the surviving dog is unknown. As reported by CNY Central News, Chilson is scheduled to appear in court on August 27.

Dogs need protection from the heat

Intense heat continues to plague much of the nation and dogs continue to suffer because of owners who fail to protect them adequately from the heat. Dogs must not be left in parked car during warm weather and they also need protection from the heat when left outdoors or on patios.

Shelter from the sun, in addition to fresh, cool water, is critical. If you see a dog in danger, please do not hesitate to reach out for help from the authorities.

    I do not understand why this is not a FELONY! In any event, it’s going to be VERY VERY HOT in that “special place” that waits for her …

    Lock her up in a hot box with nothing to eat or drink to let her suffer like she did to those poor dogs! I hope she is put away for a long time and is not allowed to own or be near any animals! Abuse resulting in an animals death should be a felony charge!

    This Narcissistic, Overbearing Woman DID this Deliberately so the Dogs would not Void or Defecate on the New York floors!!! Ms. New York needs to be sentenced to time in prison with the Broom Patrol who will make sure She understands How Horrific a death was suffered by the helpless dogs she determined should be deprived of the life sustaining fluids and food and temperature to survive… her fellow criminal minded cell mates have much more respect for a murderer than an “fking” animal abuser and killer… Let’s hope she gets a judge and prosecutor that are also Dog Friendly!!! Because this Bitch needs to know the enduring Pain and Suffering or she will just do it again and again..

    I wonder what her excuse for doing such a thing was, and why is it only a class A felony? This was murder and she needs to pay dearly for it. I am so sick and tired of seeing dogs dying because of some POS’s inexcusable abuse and then they receive a slap on the wrist punishment!
