West Virginia: Tammara Briggs, 28, charged with cruelty over a pit bull puppy with a fractured spine

WEST VIRGINIA -- A Wood County woman is facing animal-cruelty charges related to the the abuse of a pit bull puppy named Casper.

Tammara Briggs, 28, of Mineral Wells, was arrested today by Wood County sheriff's deputies and charged with cruelty to animals.

She was arraigned in Wood County magistrate court and released on a $4,000 bond.

 
"He is not likely to ever walk again. His bladder needs
expressed  to urinate and he has no bowel control."

Deputies arrested Briggs at her home in Mineral Wells. Deputies say a second pit bull was removed from the residence and that it was taken to the Humane Society of Parkersburg.

Hopefully child protective services also conducts an investigation to make sure she isn't neglecting them as well.

Some locals are outraged over the mistreatment of a 7-week-old puppy who was later rescued by the Humane Society of Parkersburg.

Casper was found thanks to a tip from a friend of the owner, and on Monday the Humane Society stepped in to care for him, and took him immediately to the veterinarian.

ACCIDENT OR TORTURE?

Doctors say they don't think he will ever fully recover or walk again. The x-ray and MRI showed Casper had a fractured spine.


Thanks to help from the community, the shelter was able to cover the cost of the funds to help Casper.

On Thursday, he was transferred to a rescue in Maryland that works with pit bulls.

 
Casper is now released from hospitalization. He is on
pain medication and steroids. Still has no bladder control
but his spirit is strong. He is a typical puppy in every other way.
 

Michelle Earl, executive director for the Humane Society of Parkersburg, was devastated when she saw what happened to the young puppy.

"We plan to be very involved with the prosecution of this," Earl said. "To take care of Casper and see how helpless he is now because of somebody inflicting trauma to him is just senseless, and we want people to know that we're not going to tolerate it. We are going to press charges and we are going to try to execute to the fullest extent to the law the punishment that we can give to people."


Casper has been renamed Trotter

  1. Does she have a job? My guess would be no. People who work full time and get no free support usually dont have time to shoplift, etc.

  2. How come she didn't go to jail and get bond revoked when she was charged with conspiracy to commit petit larceny then 2 wks later got caught shop lifting. Hope she gets more than a slap on the wrist this time.

  4. This takes a very mentally disturbed woman to do this. She has had to use blunt force to inflict all these various injuries. It has been said she even took a video of this along with abusing her son. She belongs in a mental institution for life. I don't think jail is the answer. It is evident that she is very sick. She should also have to pay back every dime towards that poor babies vet bills. She is a menace to our society. A repetitive criminal

  9. Tutor, No she's living off the system. Her only employment is "flipping puppies ". She gets free or cheap pit pups and Jacks up the price then turns around and sells them for a profit. At least the ones who survive her abuse ate sold. POS!!!

  13. Yes...she is a psycho & should be in an institution for life. I hope somehow the puppy improves & can have a life. She removed his life totally as of now. What goes thru someone's head to do such an act. 7 weeks! One cannot even adopt a dog at that age. This animal suffered a great deal which continues. I wish someone would go after her. Her name is out there & location. She must pay, big time!
