FDL Woman Makes Initial Appearance In Puppy Abuse Case

A $2,500 signature bond was set for the 30-year-old Fond du Lac woman whose 8-year-old son doused two puppies with bleach. Amanda Farr made an initial appearance in Fond du Lac County Court this morning on the one felony and six misdemeanor charges she’s facing. She is accused of knowing about, but doing nothing while her young son dumped bleach on a puppy that was “biting” at his feet. He then placed the 6-8 week old puppy in a trash bag and took it outside and put it in a dumpster. Another puppy was splashed with bleach. Three puppies were rescued from the apartment on Martin Avenue and the two injured puppies were treated for caustic burns. Farr has been charged with five counts of being party to the crime with two counts each of giving poison to an animal and mistreatment of animals and one count of intentional abandonment. She also faces charges of intentionally providing improper outdoor shelter and disorderly conduct. As part of her bond conditions she can’t have any contact with animals.
