Fresno Man Arrested on Multiple Charges of Animal Cruelty

FRESNO – The Fresno County Sheriff’s Office arrested a man for animal cruelty after deputies found dead and malnourished animals on his property.

Approximate location of Long's property

The sheriff’s office arrested 30-year-old Gary Charles Long for the mistreatment of many animals including pigs, dogs, and cows at his residence in the 1100 block of South Cornelia Avenue near Lincoln Avenue.

Deputies learned about the state of the animals after receiving an anonymous call just before 4 p.m. on Wednesday. When deputies arrived on scene, they found a dead cow on the ground in the same pen as three other cows who appeared very malnourished. They also discovered many dead chickens on the property.

In addition to the dead animals, there were also many animals on the property who appeared to not have been fed or given water in some time. Deputies found pigs, dogs, and rabbits without any access to food or water. Apparently there was water and food on the property but none had been provided for the animals, according to the sheriff’s office.

The deputies were able to save one pig which had initially appeared dead. They found it lying among the other pigs and doused it with water, then force-fed water until it showed signs of life, according to the sheriff’s office.

Deputies say the extreme temperatures in the last several days did not help the situation.

Long will be facing 16 counts of animal cruelty.
