Colesville Man Charged In Animal Cruelty Case

Provided by Broome County Sheriff’s Office

A town of Colesville man has been arrested after two dead dogs and two more emaciated dogs were discovered at his residence.

Authorities say 30-year-old Jason Lamoree of Route 41 faces four counts each of torturing or injuring an animal; abandonment of an animal; and neglect of an impounded animal.

According to the Broome County Sheriff’s Office, a deputy was sent to Lamoree’s residence to investigate an anonymous report of dead dogs on the property.

No one was home when the deputy investigated the report but he did detect an odor of decomposing flesh on the property.

The deputy then found the bodies of two dogs, chained in back of the residence. He also discovered two emaciated and dehydrated dogs locked in a kennel.

According to the sheriff’s office, the animals were in “desperate need of medical care.”

Investigators say Lamoree indicated he believed the dogs had died in February or March but wasn’t sure because he had not checked on them in “several months.”

The Humane Society assisted the sheriff’s office in removing the dogs and providing treatment. The two living dogs were expected to survive.

Lamoree turned himself in at the sheriff’s office on Sunday. He was issued appearance tickets for Colesville town court.
