48-year-old Juanita White and 30-year-old Davina L. Kearney live in Asbury Park, NJ, and they are in some serious trouble.
The two women are facing animal cruelty charges following the death of a pit bull who was chained up outside in some seriously intense heat.
Two pit bulls were chained up in the womens' backyard and were slowly dying all day in the intense heat.
They even attempted to dig down into the dirt to try and cool themselves off.
One of the dogs died after he tried to jump over a fence in search of shade in a neighbor's yard. Still being tethered, he hung to death.
The other dog was still alive when authorities investigated after a neighbor's tip.
The woman are facing charges for not providing proper shelter, not providing water and taking action (or inaction) that lead to the death of the one dog.
We can't believe people can be so heartless and cruel!!
Take care of your dogs!!!
