A Jefferson woman was arrested on Tuesday afternoon and charged with leaving a 10-week-old puppy to drown in a cage in a West Milford pond. According to the Last Resort Rescue, Tonya Fea, 47, on April 30, put the golden retriever inside of a crate in the pond. She has been charged with animal cruelty and trespassing.
“I just spoke to the detective charge of the case and I’m happy to report that the woman who murdered this puppy has been arrested and charged. But sickening that our worst fears were confirmed, The official autopsy report confirm that drowning was the cause of death. Jenny was ALIVE and was intentionally drowned by this monster. They have applied the maximum charges BUT We ALL need to keep sharing and make sure our voices are heard when it comes time for sentencing!!”
The rescue found the crate with a vase inside along with wee-wee pads with blood on them stuck to the side of the puppy’s head. Out of respect for life, the puppy was named Jenny. A $12,000 reward had been offered leading to the arrest and conviction of the person responsible for the heinous act.
Fea has been released from jail and is scheduled to appear in court on May 22.
