Local News

An Ontario County woman is facing charges of animal cruelty after deputies say she left her dog behind after being evicted.

Investigators say Leah Coleman, age 27, was evicted from a home on Castle Street in Geneva on May 24. The following day, the Humane Society was called to the residence for a barking dog.

At the home, deputies say, they found the dog, Nala, tied to the porch without food or water.

The Humane Society found the dog had a severe skin condition due to neglect and unsanitary living conditions.

Coleman is now charged with animal cruelty, animal abandonment, and failure to provide food/water to an impounded animal.
