Animal Neglect Arrest

Dubuque Police arrested a man early Friday morning who now faces multiple charges in an animal neglect case. 30 year old Cesar Leonel Gonzalez is charged with livestock neglect resulting in death, eight counts of failure to dispose of a dead animal, and multiple counts of livestock neglect. Authorities have removed several animals from a Dubuque farm where more than a dozen other animals were found dead. It all started on December 7th, when Dubuque Police received a report of possible neglect of a donkey at the home at 2663 Roosevelt Street. Animal control found the animal to be in poor condition. On December 11th, an Animal Control Officer returned to the home for a report of animals on the loose. They found several dead animals at the home at that time. Authorities returned to the home on December 13 to check on the animals. While there, they found at least 28 animals, 13 of which were dead, still laying outside. On December 17, Dubuque police removed 26 animals found in poor health from a farm. Police worked with the Dubuque Regional Humane Society and Iowa Equine Rescue and Awareness League.
