Robert Thomas, 38, court date is set for June, 18 at the Corning Town courthouse. Steuben County deputies checked on Thomas and the dogs today and says that he is doing everything that they had asked of him.
“He has cleaned every single pen, removed all bones from their area, and he’s placed straw in all of their areas so they are not standing in two inches of mud anymore,” Sheriff’s Deputy Brooke Payne.
The animal bones were of cow and dear that Thomas was using to feed the dogs combined with dog food. Though feeding dogs raw meat like this is not illegal, keeping the bones inside of the pens is.
