In Collinsville, Oklahoma, authorities charged the woman who owned a puppy found dead in an old red suitcase along a walking trail at Collinsville Lake. Shelly Standridge owned the dog and refused to take him to a veterinarian. She was charged with felony animal cruelty on Saturday.
According to Newson6, Collinsville police stated the cocker spaniel mix was already dead before he was placed inside of the suitcase. A necropsy revealed the pup had parasites and that he belonged to Standridge who let the dog suffer for four or five days. Susie McConaghie, owner of Paco Paws Rescue, and who also helps out with the city shelter was heartbroken and said she could have helped the puppy and the owner had she known.
Standridge claimed she thought her boyfriend had buried the dog after it died.
Standridge also has two outstanding warrants for her arrest for unrelated cases in Tulsa County. Her bond has been set at $4,000.
