Danville Police responded to the 300 blk. of Edmonds St. last night for a report of animal cruelty. Officers located a dog that was obviously dead inside of a fenced lot. During the investigation, officers determined the identity of the owners who were ultimately charged with felony animal cruelty. Officers seized another dog and a rabbit from the owners. The second dog was in good condition and the rabbit was slightly malnourished. All of the animals were transported to the Danville Area Human Society. The deceased dog was sent for a necropsy in order to assist in determining the cause of death.
