The Vicksburg Police Department arrested 33-years-old KOREY EARL JAMAL CAGE (pictured) and charged him with aggravated animal cruelty.
On April 12, 2023, investigators responded to an animal abuse call at Carr Central Apartments on 1805 Cherry Street. Upon arrival, they saw on the balcony of Apartment 321, a Pitbull-type dog who was scared and was shaking. According to a press release by the Vicksburg Police Department and obtained by Voice For Us, “Closed - Circuit Television (CCTV) also shows the abuse taking place.”
Police said the dog had multiple obvious injuries, including blood and open wounds to his/her body, consistent with thermal burns and abuse. The Voiceless Victim was taken to the Animal Medical Clinic for treatment. A veterinarian determined that the furbaby sustained these injuries due to ongoing abuse.
CAGE was taken into custody on April 17, 2023. On the same day he appeared before Municipal Court Judge Angela Carpenter and received a $200,000 bond.
CAGE was bound over to the Warren County Grand Jury.
