A guy from Titusville is going to jail because deputies say he let two dogs die of hunger at his house and almost killed a third.
Brevard County Sheriff Wayne Ivey said that the investigation into 38-year-old Robert Swindoll started on Tuesday when a worried citizen called the BCSO’s Animal Enforcement Team to report dogs in distress at a home on Nicholson Street in Titusville.
The team went to the address but couldn’t find anyone there. However, they were able to see two dead dogs and a third dog that was “extremely emaciated.”
The dogs that had already died, the Sheriff’s Office said, were also very thin and had been tied up without food or water.
Swindoll Got Charged
The sheriff’s office got a warrant for Swindoll, charging him with three counts of felony abuse to animals and three counts of misdemeanor confinement of an animal without food or water.
He is being kept in the Brevard County Jail on a bond of $7,500, which is the most that can be set for those crimes.
The tweet below confirms the news:
Sheriff Ivey said of Swindoll’s arrest, “This person doesn’t deserve to be treated like he will be here.” “He deserves to be treated like how he treated those poor, helpless pups.”
Ivey noticed that the dog’s owner wasn’t allowed to live at the house anymore, but she still brought dog food to the dogs. Ivey says that Swindoll, despite this, only fed his own dogs and let the others die.
The only dog that lived was given to the county’s medical team so that they could try to get it healthy again.
