Justice for Dog Burned to Death

Target: Jaime Esparza, District Attorney for El Paso County,

A homeless woman by the name of Lori Jean Pollard, 38, was arrested on suspicion of being responsible for the death of a dog who was found in a burning shopping cart. Ms. Pollard had allegedly placed a candle in the shopping cart to keep her dog warm but flammables in the cart caught fire and resulted in its death.

Witnesses were reported to have extinguished the flames, but it was too late and the dog died. Detectives with the newly formed Animal Cruelty Unit responded to the call and Ms. Pollard was booked into the El Paso Police Detention Facility on an $8,500.00 bond.

After new legislation passed in 2017, Texans could now face up to 10 years in prison for animal abuse. We applaud this move and ask that Ms. Pollard receive the maximum penalty if convicted of this unspeakable cruelty to an innocent animal.

  1. I went to high school with this girl. So sad to hear she was homeless. I heard the dog was paralyzed already and she was taking care of it before the accident happened. Sounds like a tragic accident. 10 years is very unreasonable.
