Clovis man pleads guilty to extreme cruelty to animals
CLOVIS, New Mexico -
John Davis, 64, of Clovis, pleaded guilty to extreme cruelty to animals, a fourth degree felony.
The Curry County Sheriff’s Office found dead and decaying dogs and a greyhound with a severely embedded collar at Davis' home earlier this year.
All the dogs were seized and the greyhound was taken to the veterinarian where it had to be euthanized. The remaining dogs were housed at the City of Clovis Animal Shelter. The Sheriff’s Office had previously been at Davis’ home in 2009, when dogs had been seized and the deputies had attempted to work with him regarding his animals.
Davis was sentenced to 18 months, suspended in favor of supervised probation and ordered to pay $1,000 to animal rescue group, Cindy’s Hope for Precious Paws, and ordered not to possess any animals.
