A 34-year-old Omaha woman is facing a felony charge of animal cruelty in the death of her dog found lying in a cage covered in its own filth.
The Nebraska Humane Society said Mashaunda Ball was arrested Monday.
The society says Ball had called Nov. 26 to report her dog had died. Society workers who responded found the Boston terrier, Bubbles, still alive in his wire cage. He was covered in feces and had urine burns on his paw pads.
The emaciated dog was euthanized after he was taken to a veterinarian for treatment. A necropsy report says Bubbles had five sharp pieces of plastic in his stomach.
