Portsmouth woman arrested for animal cruelty after dog found hanging from fence
Portsmouth, Va. – Portsmouth police say a dog was found hanging from a fence on a woman’s property.
Now 33-year-old Shannon Forehand is charged with cruelty to animals.
Investigators say animal control found the dog Tuesday evening.
Neighbors tell NewsChannel 3 they heard the animal was hanging there for hours before finally being discovered.
Neighbors also say the dog was always seen chained up out back and kids in the area would go by to feed it because it looked skinny and malnourished.
