LEWISTON, Maine - Charges have been filed against a woman accused of abandoning a dog outside of a Lewiston animal shelter.
According to WCSH-TV in Portland, the Androscoggin District Attorney has charged Sarah Vye with cruelty to animals.
Vye is accused of dropping the dog off outside the Greater Androscoggin Humane Society right before closing. The dog ran around for three days before shelter employees eventually found it dead, having been hit by a car.
"It is heartbreaking," said shelter operations manager Zach Black. "The dog's body language, it's tail was wagging, it seemed happy just to be outside and then it was chasing the car almost like when you leave your door, yard, your dog may chase your car wanting to be with you," he said.
Vye says the dog bit her toddler son several times and she was unable to get the prior owner to take it back.
