An Omaha dog owner was cited for leaving her two dogs outside in the frigid weather. Mark Langan is the Vice President of Field Operations for the Nebraska Humane Society says animal control was called Tuesday night to check on the well-being of two four-pound Chihuahua’s.
Langan says, “The dogs were found in the back yard of a home in south Omaha. Sadly, we found one of the dead when we arrived and the other one freezing. We were able to save the other dog luckily but the first dog died of exposure and hypothermia.”
Langan says the dogs were tethered between a fence and a pole and their were tangled to the point they couldn’t move and that compounded the situation.
Maria Robideaux was cited for animal cruelty.
Langan says this is a common sense situation that you never leave animals outside in frigid temperatures – especially two small Chihuahuas.
