A Delaware County woman has been arrested on animal cruelty charges for failing to provide proper food and sustenance for several dogs in her care. The Delaware County Sheriff's Office charged 40-year-old Bonnie J. Tanner of Hobart, N.Y. with cruelty to animals after two dogs were found dead, and another malnourished in her home. The sheriff's office says an investigation revealed the dogs were held in a bedroom for six months without adequate food, water or care.

The malnourished dog was relinquished to the Dog Control Officer and taken to the Delaware County Humane Society for evaluation and necessary treatment. Tanner was issued an appearance ticket and was released to appear in the Stamford Town Court on a later date to answer the charge.
