Two Arrested for Animal Cruelty

A disturbing case of animal cruelty caught on video leads to the arrest of two people.

The video shows a man slinging a dog by a leash into a dumpster outside a daycare center on O’Neill Street.

He then goes back and closes the lid on the dumpster.

On Wednesday, 40-year old Jason Keith Kelley and 41-year old Tonya Marie Trapp, both of a Covered Springs Drive address in Rome, were arrested and charged with aggravated cruelty to animals.

The suspects are in no way affiliated with the daycare center.

Workers are the daycare center found the dog in the dumpster.

It survived and is now being cared for.
