EASTON — Easton police on Nov. 27 arrested an Easton woman on animal cruelty charges.
According to a news release, Easton police officers responded to Brett Road in June to investigate a report of someone beating a dog.
Police said they met with Susan Greenhawk, 61, of Easton and saw a dog in her care that appeared to be in poor health.
Officers seized the dog and arrested Greenhawk for an unrelated offense, police said.
The dog was taken to Talbot Humane and later seen by a veterinarian, who concluded it was dehydrated and malnourished, police said.
Following her Nov. 27 arrest, Greenhawk was charged with two counts of aggravated animal cruelty, one count of animal cruelty and two counts of failing to provide care.
According to online court records, she was held without bond at the Talbot County Detention Center until Dec. 2, when she was released on personal recognizance following a bail review hearing. A trial is scheduled for Jan. 14 in Talbot County District Court.
