Dogs Found Dead in a Chicago Apartment


Two dogs were found dead in an apartment at 500 W. Belmont in Chicago’s Lakeview neighborhood. Little is known, except that the dogs were found late last week by a maintenance worker.

While police indicate it seems the dogs were neglected,  the 22-year-old owner was charged with failure to perform animal ownership duties and animal cruelty as misdemeanors, according to printed reports.  Animal cruelty can also be a felony, but apparently not the case in this instance.
