PRINCE GEORGE COUNTY, Va. -- A woman was convicted of misdemeanor animal cruelty after she left her dog tied-up outside while fleas attacked him. The fleas slowly drained the dog’s blood until he died.

"That dog was crying for at least eight hours. I had never heard an animal so sad in my life,” said a neighbor.

Crying for Hours

Animal Control was called to Country Aire that rainy September day by a neighbor concerned about Golden's well being.

Amanda Hios said she was used to seeing Golden left tied up outside, but it was what she heard that day that moved her to act.
"That dog was crying for at least eight hours," Hios said. "I had never heard an animal so sad in my life."

Before she called Animal Control, Hios said she approached Golden in an effort to help.
"When I helped him move, I noticed all the fleas," she said. "I never saw so many fleas in my life."

Hios said based on what she saw, Solis' six-month active jail sentence was too lenient.

"I don't think six months is enough time," she said. "She should have gotten more."

Animal Control supervisor Greene said the six-month active sentence was one of the strongest he'd seen during his time on the job.
"The sentence was fair... if you neglect to provide care for your dog -- it is going to be taken seriously," he said. "It was a harsh, but fair sentence."
