This was was Patrick’s life before he was miracously saved.
A New Jersey woman pleaded guilty Tuesday to an animal cruelty charge after authorities say her emaciated dog was found starved and near-death, wrapped in a plastic bag and thrown down a building’s garbage chute.
The Essex County Prosecutor’s Office said Kisha Curtis pleaded guilty to fourth-degree animal cruelty. She also gave up custody of the dog. Curtis was set to go to trial on Wednesday.
The 29-year-old Irvington resident was accused of tying the pit bull to the railing in her former Newark apartment building, then leaving the state for more than a week in 2011.
The dog – named Patrick by his rescuers when he was brought in around St. Patrick’s Day – was found near death in a plastic bag at the bottom of a trash chute. The dog survived and recovered.
He was saved by beautiful people and somehow nursed back to health. I wanted to put his photos of his before and after but it is too graphic and horrific. Check his before and after photos here:
I would love more than anything to slap the shit out of this lady before she walks into jail.
