LONG ISLAND (PIX11)– A Long Island man is charged with animal cruelty after his dog was discovered nearly starved to death.
Michael Faulkner was responsible for the family dog “Queenie.”
Faulkner went through a divorce and cops say, out of spite, he locked the dog in a bedroom and left it without food or water for weeks.
Faulkner’s ex-wife found the emaciated dog near death and called police.
Queenie is recovering at an animal hospital.
