Fayette County man arrested on animal cruelty charges

FAYETTE COUNTY, W.Va. (WSAZ) — A man from Fayette County was arrested after deputies say he severely neglected his pets, including one dog that had to be euthanized, county sheriff’s deputies say.

Caleb Sutphin, 32, of Oak Hill, is charged with two counts of cruelty to animals. He was taken to the Southern Regional Jail. His bond is $7,500.

Earlier this month, deputies were notified about animal neglect at a home along Summerlee Road in Oak Hill. They found two dogs that were severely neglected. Their leashes were tangled so much that they had trouble moving.

“Both were terribly underweight and in critically poor health,” according to the sheriff's department release.

Animal Control took both dogs to a veterinary hospital where one had to be euthanized because it was in such poor condition. The other dog is still being treated there.

"Mistreating your animals is inexcusable and will not be tolerated," Sheriff Mike Fridley said in the release. "They rely on you for food, shelter and care. If you can't handle the responsibility, you shouldn't cause them to suffer for it.”

Anyone who sees animal abuse in the county is asked to call 304-574-3590. They also may visit the sheriff’s department’s Facebook page or contact Crime Stoppers of West Virginia at 304-255-STOP.
