Jenna Baitler Arrested for Cruelty to Animals; Animals Seized

WEST VIRGINIA -- Washington County Deputies arrested a Marietta woman on animal cruelty charges Wednesday.

20-year-old Jenna Baitler is charged with failure to register a dog and two counts of cruelty to animals.

The Sheriff's Office calls Baitler's home deplorable. They found trash, animal feces and hay throughout the home.

Officials say two of the dogs were starving and their bones showing. In an effort to get water, officials tell WTAP, a 10-month-old Mastiff bit a faucet and flooded the apartment.

A cat also lacked nutrition. Deputies say the apartment did not have cat food or a clean litter box.

Additionally, a hedgehog had to be euthanized.

The two dogs and cat were taken to the Humane Society of the Ohio Valley.
