Following a disturbing animal abuse investigation, the Charlotte County Sherriff’s Office arrested a woman.
One of the animal control officers told WINK News this started when the sheriff’s office asked them to assist in the eviction because there was a dog in the house.
On Monday, the sheriff’s office arrested Morgan Amelia Bright, 29. When deputies entered her home last July, they found two dogs. The first was in very poor condition and was found in the master bedroom. The second was found dead on the other side of the bed.
Matthew Meredith is a Charlotte County animal control officer. “Neighbors said they had only seen her a few times. Of course, she said they wish she was there more often than that,” Meredith said.
“And because we can’t dissect the body Riddick“Unfortunately, we’re not 100% sure how long he’s been dead, which should give us a little more indication of how long the animals were actually left alone,” Meredith said.
And after reviewing the case, the State Attorney’s Office brought a charge of animal abuse against Bright.
A dog named Riddick was found dead. The other, Cash, has found a new home since the renovation.
