A 38-year-old man is facing animal cruelty charges after dead and suffering dogs were found in his Bridgeport, Connecticut yard. As reported by Fox 63 News, the cruel situation was discovered when firefighters responded to the home of David Valle on Tuesday night after receiving reports of smoke coming from the backyard of a residence on Wayne Street.
The firefighters reached out to the authorities because Valle upset that they were there and they were being threatened by people at the home. While at the residence, the firefighters observed malnourished dogs in the backyard – one of the dogs was locked in a filthy cage and the other was “shivering” on a deck.
According to Connecticut News 12, the remains of three deceased dogs were found inside of a burning shed. The surviving dogs were seized and taken to an area animal shelter for care.
Valle was arrested and is facing multiple charges, including animal cruelty, reckless burning, interfering with an officer/resisting, breach of peace in the second degree, and threatening in the second degree. Another person at the residence, identified as 39-year-old Sherry Yasin, was arrested for interfering with the police/resisting arrest.
