- Florida, USA -
21-year-old SELENA DUNLAP (pictured below), was arrested on Monday, August 31, 2020, and charged with unlicensed practice of veterinary medicine and cruelty to animals.
Following a report that DUNLAP was “injecting cats with food”, Sgt. Stephanie Eddins with the Escambia County Animal Control, responded to a home on the 1300 block of Tate Road in Cantonment.
This happened on May 20.
WEARTV reports that when Sgt. Eddins was at the home, she saw a couple of dogs and cats.
DUNLAP and her roommates were there.
Sgt. Eddins then asked about a kitten and she was told the kitten was inside the trailer.
According to the report, the trailer was filled with trash, cigarette buds, old food, and a dog kennel covered in blankets.
DUNLAP was questioned about what she had been injecting the cat with, and the female said she gave the cat sugar water, pet tinic, watered down milk and antibiotics.
Sgt, Eddins noticed this sicko had a magazine titled "Secrets To Being a Vet Tech.”
The poor kitten was unable to hold his small head up and before she took the furbaby to the Escambia County Animal Shelter, DUNLAP’s roommates argued that she was “helping the animal.”
Sadly, the poor baby passed away.
DUNLAP was taken to the Escambia County Jail and she is being held on a $6,000 bond.
WEARTV also reports that in October 2019, DUNLAP’s father contacted animal control because his daughter was living in a tent in the woods and collected dead animals and she also had live animals.
On that occasion, when animal control responded, DUNLAP told officers that she had seven dogs and eight cats.
The puppies were found covered in fleas.
Animal control simply removed 12 animals and ordered this sick female to bury the dead animals.
She was not arrested and clearly, no one kept an eye on her.
