FDL Woman Pleads Not Guilty To Puppy Abuse Charges

The 30-year-old Fond du Lac woman whose 8-year-old son doused two puppies with bleach last month has been bound over for trial. Amanda Farr was in Fond du Lac County Court for a preliminary hearing Thursday afternoon and pled not guilty to the charges she’s facing when she was subsequently arraigned. She’s accused of knowing about, but doing nothing to prevent the incident at the Maplewood Apartments on February 22nd. The puppies have since recovered from caustic burns although the lungs of one known as Turner are permanently scarred. They have new homes as of last weekend. According to the criminal complaint Turner was “biting” at the feet of the boy and the boy poured bleach on him, splashing some on Turner’s sister Tina. The boy then placed Turner in a garbage bag and took him outside and placed him in a dumpster. Both puppies were exposed to the bleach for about three hours.
