Muskingum County Sheriff Matt Lutz says a Zanesville man has been charged in an animal cruelty case.
Sheriff Lutz says Terry Weaver of 3630 Adamsville Road is facing 12 counts of animal cruelty. The Sheriff says his office received several complaints within the last year against Weaver.
Sheriff Lutz says his deputies removed nine dogs and two cats alive from that property... two cats died. The Sheriff says the animals were in poor health and were kept in poor living conditions.
The Sheriff says Weaver supposedly operated Maysville Animal Rescue, and supposedly received donations from the public.
