- West Virginia, USA -
On the evening of August 4, 2023, 28-years-old, STACIA AAB (pictured), former animal rescue worker, was booked into the South Central Regional Jail and Correctional Facility on animal cruelty charges.
Following an animal cruelty complaint, Kanawha County authorities responded to AAB’s home in the 1200 block of Woodland Drive. In a freezer in the basement, officials found two deceased dogs “swarming with maggots.”
Officials additionally discovered other dogs, cats, and kittens who were alive but not in healthy condition.
One dog was found severely emaciated in a crate filled with feces and urine; a mother cat was found with a broken spine and her two baby kittens were dehydrated; another cat was found without food or water.
According to WSAZ, Nautica Cohenour, a Humane Officer with the Charleston Police Department, said: “The power had been cut off since mid-June. The two dogs in the freezer were decomposed so that the scent was just so overwhelming.”
The live furvictims were taken to the Kanawha-Charleston Humane Association to be examined and treated.
AAB has been arrested on twenty-six (26) pending counts of cruelty to animals.
Online records show AAB is being held on a $10,000 cash-only bond.
