Tampa, Florida. Animal Abuse. Five Dogs Neglected. November 2008.
As if to prove that there is a correlation between human and animal violence, the couple was arrested last Summer for domestic violence. Hey, gotto give them credit for consistency.
Wilmer Fernandez and Aixa Rodriguez were charged with two felony counts of animal cruelty, two misdemeanor counts of animal cruelty and three misdemeanor counts of confinement of animals without food or water. In the meantime, they will be using up precious oxygen that we have to share with them.
About Casper, the dog:
UPDATE : Wilmer and Aixa Rodriguez were found guilt of felony animal cruelty on August 14, 2009 in Tampa, Florida. Two veterinary doctors testified that Casper weighed only 32 pounds when the normal weight should be between 45 and 60 pounds. The defendants' argued that Casper's weight dropped on its own, and that Casper was like their own child. The Rodriguezes could face up to five years in prison come sentencing time.
