A 32-year-old Brownsville woman has been arrested on one count of cruelty to a non-livestock animal after a dead pitbull was found hanging from a chain link fence.

Brownsville police said Veronica Garcia failed to provide the necessary care and shelter for the pitbull that was in her care.

Police went to a home at the 2600 block of Impala Drive on Wednesday in reference to a case of suspected animal cruelty. When they arrived at the residence they found the dead dog.
