OROSI – Deputies of the Tulare County Sheriff’s Officer responded to an animal cruelty report on October 17th.
When they arrived at the Orosi home on Ave 428, they found two dead dogs. The deputies called in detectives who took over the investigation.
The men suspected the dogs were the culprits who killed their baby pigs. They captured the dogs, hung them, and beat them with sticks until they were dead.
Valencia and Rivera were arrested and charged with animal cruelty. Rivera has since bonded out but Valencia remains at the Adult Pre-Trial Facility with bail set at $50,000.
