Falls Street man with sick dog charged with aggravated cruelty to animals

NIAGARA FALLS - A Falls Street man was charged with aggravated cruelty to animals Wednesday after taking his dog to the Rainbow Animal Shelter to be euthanized, police said.

Shelter officials who  alerted police reported the chow mix dog was emaciated, infested with "hundreds of fleas’’ and unable to move. Police said the owner reported that the dog had “collapsed.’’

Ross A. Schul, 59, was charged after it was determined the dog's condition was the result of a “lack of proper medical care," police said.
