Trial Delayed For Man Accused of Animal Abuse
A question was asked in the anwer area of this site the other day, that if you saw your SO or whatever abusing an animal, would you call the police??? My answer was yes - and here is a pretty good example of why.
FREDERICK, Md. (AP) ―
The trial of a man accused of hitting a pit bull puppy, fracturing its skull and blinding the animal, has been delayed.
Troy D. Goines of Frederick has been charged with felony and misdemeanor animal cruelty in the August incident. According to charging documents, Goines punched the dog in Discovery, a Walkersville subdivision. The dog's owner agreed to have it euthanized after its condition deteriorated.
An emergency kept a prosecution witness from appearing in Frederick County Circuit Court at a jury trial on Monday. The trial has been rescheduled for March 30.
