Felony Charges Filed In Greene County Dog Case

There are more charges against a man who authorities say was keeping more than thirty dogs near Hookerton.

Greene County animal control officers say Christopher McKinney is now charged with one felony count of animal torture and three felony counts of dog fighting.

Last month animal control found dogs at two locations that were without food, water or proper shelter. Some of the dogs were found cooped up in wire cages or tied down with thick heavy chains around their necks.

McKinney already was facing 49 misdemeanor counts of various animal cruelty charges.
