Woman Charged With Aggravated Animal Cruelty In Cambridge

Posted: Updated:

CAMBRIDGE, Md. - A Cambridge woman has been charged with animal cruelty after her dog, was apparently found  frozen to death.

The Dorchester County Sheriff's Offices say a Deputy served 27-year-old Kristen Meninger with a criminal summons on December 13th. The charges stem from an incident the day before, when County Animal Control officers reported found a pit bull chained outside Meninger's Horns Point Road home, that had apparently frozen to death. Officials say there was no evidence of food or water being given to the dog, and that it had an open wound on its leg.

Meninger was charged with animal cruelty, inflicting unnecessary pain and suffering, animal cruelty, failure to provide food and water, aggravated animal cruelty, restraining a dog outside in a manner that restricts access to food and water, and unsafe and unsanitary restraint of dog.

A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Meninger, on January 27th, in Dorchester County District Court.
