Tetrault Charged With 2 Counts Animal Cruelty

JOHNSTON, R.I. -- Johnston police said a 20-year-old woman muzzled her two pit bull dogs with tape and left them in her apartment without food or water for two days while she went to the hospital to give birth.

Diana Tetrault is charged with two counts of animal cruelty. She is scheduled for arraignment in District Court in Warwick on Wednesday.

Police Maj. Ralph Bubar III said neighbors heard the dogs whimpering last week and told police they hadn't seen anyone visit the woman's apartment for two days.
He said Officer Erin Medeiros went to the apartment and found the animals emaciated and suffering from wounds from electrical tape wrapped around their snouts.

Police contacted Tetrault by telephone and she told them she was in the hospital and had given birth to a baby boy.
