WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - A Palm Beach County man has been arrested on one count of animal cruelty.
Palm Beach County Animal Care and Control says that they received a call from Leslie Mosley because he was having problems taking care of his three dogs.
Officers asked Mosley to bring the dogs to a shelter in Pahokee and put them in empty kennels.
When the officers arrived at the shelter the dogs were running loose in the parking lot.
An investigator says a female German Shepherd was very thin sickly and bleeding from both ears.
The dog, according to officers, did not respond to treatment and had to be euthanized, according to Mosley's arrest report.
Mosley told investigators that he kept his dogs chained outside his girlfriend's mobile home in Belle Glade but he did not live there.
The dogs, according to Mosley, were fed and given water every day.
Mosley was arrested and booked into the Palm Beach County Jail. He was released on bond.
