Woman allegedly starved pit bull to death

Woman arrested – accused of starving her pit bull to death

A woman in Omaha, Nebreska, was arrested for allegedly starving her pit bull to death. According to multiple sources, 25-year-old Ayeshea Colbenson taken into custody on Wednesday; she is facing a felony count of animal neglect or abandonment resulting in death.

The allegations

Colbenson allegedly kept her pit bull, Bella, locked in a kennel and denied the dog food, reports WOWT News. Bella’s body was picked up by animal control on January 1 after she phoned the Nebraska Humane Society to report that her dog had died. Colbenson reportedly admitted to investigators that her dog died in the kennel. A necropsy on Bella’s body determined that starvation was the cause of death.

On the day that Colbenson was arrested, officials discovered that she had already taken possession of a new pit bull. That dog was seized and taken to the Nebraska Humane Society.

As reported by Omaha.com, Colbenson has a history of animal neglect – since 2016, there have been five animal complaints against her. Keeping her dog inside of a kennel, without access to food or water, is among the list of complaints.

    Did I read correctly that she has done this before? Animal cruelty and she was allowed to get another dog? Tie her up, put her in the same kennel as the dog, and let her rot there.Eye for an eye punishment to these vermin who continue to do this to animals. Maybe the word will get out to others who do this that this is what will happen to them.
