SC Woman Accused of Not Disposing of Dead Animals


By Alicia Barnes

GREENVILLE, S.C. (AP) _ A Greenville woman has been accused of failure to dispose of three dead animals found hanging on her property.

Cheryl Lee Ross was cited Thursday morning after the cats or squirrels were found.

Greenville County spokesman Bob Mihalic says crews found the badly decomposed animals hanging on her property. Mihalic says the animals had been dead for more than 48 hours.

Ross was not charged with animal cruelty because she said she found the animals on the road and brought them on to her property.

She faces up to 30 days in jail or a fine of up to $1,000. It was not clear if she has an attorney.

Mihalic said if Ross does not remove the animals and properly dispose of them, she could face additional citations.
