Saturday, Jul 8, 2006

County: Ouachita

Disposition: Alleged

Alleged: Donna Dew

An Eros woman accused of not properly taking care of her horses was arrested Saturday, July 9th 2006.

This is the second time in just over a year that deputies have responded to complaints of cruelty to animals at her property.

Ouachita Parish sheriff's deputies arrested Donna Dew, 52, 127 Ed Fuller Road, Eros, on Saturday afternoon. She was charged with five counts of cruelty to animals and was also arrested on a warrant on another count of cruelty to animals.

She was booked into Ouachita Correctional Center.
Deputies responded to Dew's residence at the request of a concerned citizen and found five malnourished horses, arrest reports stated.

In June 2005, deputies and a local veterinarian investigated complaints of possible animal neglect by Dew.

The condition of several horses in 2005 prompted concerned citizens who live on Ed Fuller Road to report Dew.

Shortly after the complaint, a mare belonging to Dew was put to sleep. Initial reports found the mare to be sick and not a victim of neglect.

Dr. Jay Warford examined the animals in 2005 and found out that of six horses, two were underweight, reports stated.

Bond has not been set.
