Head of Animal Shelter Indicted for Stealing Dogs to Be Put Down for Killing Alpacas

Posted: Updated:

ESSEX (WRIC) - An Essex County Grand Jury has indicted Essex Animal Shelter manager Angel Milliken-Fennell and volunteers James Fennell, Ashley Marie Ray, Heaven Jacobs and Debra Cowan with burglary, two counts of grand larceny of a dog and two counts of conspiracy to commit larceny.

The charges stem from the December 2012 break in at the Essex County Animal Shelter where two pit bulls that were scheduled to be euthanized after mauling a herd of Alpacas were stolen.

The two pit bulls, Jewels and Chaos, had been declared livestock killers after killing a herd of alpacas on Upright Road in Dunnsville in August 2012.
