Pet Sitters Charged With Animal Cruelty When Owners Return To Dead Dog

Two young people, Dominick Bryant, 19, and Misha Vaughn, 22, were accused of aggravated animal cruelty after one of the two dogs they were charged with caring for died. The pair were hired to look after two Labradoodles and a cat and the animals were left in cages in the bedroom with no food or water.

When the Nashville couple returned home one of their dogs was dead in a cage in the bedroom and police were called.

Bail has been set at $5,000 each.
