Vermont woman charged with animal cruelty
ST. JOHNSBURY, Vt. (AP) — Police in St. Johnsbury, Vt., say they\'ve charged a woman who allegedly left her cat at home with no food or water, nearly starving it.
Sgt. Stephen Bunnell says the town manager\'s office alerted him to a report of possible animal cruelty at a home on Memorial Drive on Friday. A man who complained about it told police he\'d found the cat almost dead.
The animal\'s owner, 23-year-old Fawn-Marie Hall, told police she had been leaving food and water for the cat every three to five days.
The cat was taken to a veterinarian for evaluation.
Hall was cited into Caledonia County Superior Court on Aug. 8, charged with animal cruelty
