(CBS) — The veterinarian and the manager of a Dolton animal hospital have both been charged after several dead and malnourished dogs were discovered at the facility, according to the Cook County Sheriff.
Sheriff Tom Dart says Sharon Cargile, the manager of the Dolton Animal Hospital told investigators things just got away from her. That’s how she explained the horrible conditions that led to the deaths of four dogs and the rescue of nine other animals, many in bad shape. She and Dr. Armadeep Sangha are facing more than a dozen misdemeanor charges, including animal cruelty.
CBS 2’s Dana Kozlov reports, some dog owners want answers and their dogs back.
It’s been a frustrating two days for dog owner Steven Bullock. One day after dropping his puppy Kaos off at the now shuttered Dolton Animal Hospital, he saw video of Kaos being led out of the facility by Cook County Sheriff’s employees. Since then, he’s been trying to get him back from the animal welfare league.
“They told me well he is under investigation and he has been quarantined so I couldn’t see him but he is there. They say he has to be released by the sheriff,” Bullock said.
