Ohio dog groomer accused of strangling, hitting dogs at work


ARCHBOLD, Ohio (AP) — A dog groomer accused of strangling, shaking and hitting dogs at her business has been indicted on five felony counts of animal cruelty.

Court records show the charges against Theresa Taylor, of Bryan, are in connection to episodes over four days in August with various dogs at Theresa Taylor’s Grooming in Archbold.

A message seeking comment was left with her attorney Friday.

The charges came after a former employee spoke with police in August and provided surveillance footage.

The footage showed Taylor gripping and pulling dogs by their ears and the skins on their heads, The Blade in Toledo reported.

Taylor was freed on a $10,000 bond. Her arraignment is set for Dec. 3.
