Southington – Man Facing Charges After Incident

A local resident has been charged with cruelty to animals last Tuesday.

74-year-old Richard Tully has been charged by authorities related to a May 20 incident. A bulldog was left inside a car on a residential driveway located on Bristol Street. The ambient temperature was 83 degrees when respondents arrived at the scene. Witnesses reported that the animal has been waiting in the car for at least an hour when officials arrived. The bulldog was immediately transported to a veterinarian where it was diagnosed with heatstroke. It was treated and survived the ordeal.

Pets with registered owners are treated as property. As such and under appropriate circumstances, injuries sustained by these animals can entitle their owners to file compensation/damage claims.
