- New York, USA -
On Monday, December 4, 2023, the Ontario County Sheriff’s Office arrested 36-years-old ALICIA A. WRIGHT (pictured via Facebook), 37-years-old CORY JOHN DISANTO (pictured via Facebook), 54-years-old AMY E. WALKER, and her husband 60-years-old ROBERT M. WALKER.
The sheriff’s office along with the Ontario County Humane Society launched an investigation on November 24, 2023, after receiving a complaint about a property on 1074 Cress Road in Phelps.
The investigation led to the discovery of a deceased dog behind the property.
The sheriff's office said the dog, a 3-year-old Dogo Argentino named Covid, was found wrapped in a blanket several yards from a makeshift kennel, in a wooded area.
The Voiceless Victim was taken to the Cornell University Animal Health Diagnostic Center, where a necropsy was performed. Results showed that the furvictim died from starvation.
The sheriff’s office said all four individuals were aware of the furbaby’s situation even if DISANTO moved out before the investigation began. All four were charged with a felony count of aggravated cruelty to an animal.
Five other dogs were found inside the property and removed. Veterinary staff at the Ontario County Humane Society examined them and found them to be healthy.
DISANTO was taken to the Ontario County Jail for arraignment, while the others were issued an appearance ticket to appear in Phelps Town Court at a later date.
