New Port Richey, Florida -- A woman has been arrested after her lack of care led to the death of two dogs.
According to reports, on July 25 a concerned neighbor called the police in reference to a funny smell coming from a home on Atherton Avenue. The witness said she had not seen her neighbor "Micki" in over a month and knew he had several dogs who she heard whining a few weeks ago.
Pasco County Fire Rescue was called to enter the home wearing air packs due to the extreme stench and flies. Upon entering they found two dead dogs and another that was seriously malnourished.
Reportedly, Michell Schratwieser said the dogs belonged to her ex-boyfriend who left her several months ago. Schratwieser attempted to care for the animals but said she "got freaked out" when one of the dogs died and did not return to the residence.
Neighbors confirmed that Schratwieser was the person responsible for the dogs and police report that she intentionally left the dogs in an unsanitary environment without food or water.
The living dog, a Rottweiler, was transported to Animal Emergency due to her condition.
Schratwieser was arrested for cruelty to animals and transported to the Land O'Lakes jail.
