Animal Shelter Manager Charged in Cruelty Case

View Comments

The manager of the Dallas animal shelter is now charged in a case involving a cat that died inside a wall.  Tyrone McGill’s employees claim he did nothing to prevent it.  It’s not clear how the animal got inside the wall but, beginning May 3rd, workers say they heard the cat meowing and scratching to get out.  McGill was notified and, according to court documents, said he’d take care of it.  But several days went by and the cat was still crying out and scratching frantically.  By May 11th, one worker says she was told flat-out that no holes would be cut in the wall to extract the cat which ultimately died.  Only when the stench became over-powering was the wall cut  to remove the carcass.  McGill is now facing felony animal cruelty charges.
