Woman wrapped bungee cords around dogs’ muzzles to stop their barking, police say
ANKENY, Iowa - An Iowa woman is facing animal neglect charges after police say she used bungee cords to tie her dogs' muzzles in an attempt to keep them from barking. A criminal complaint says 27-year-old Elisa Andres went to the Animal Rescue League on October 2nd and surrendered three of her dogs. The ARL staff noticed there were ligature marks around two of the dogs’ muzzles. They say the dogs were dropped off in a wire kennel that had bungee cords attached to it and the marks on the dogs matched the dimensions of the cords, according to WHO.
