Man accused of animal cruelty pleads not guilty

September 17th, 2022

The St. Michael man accused of animal cruelty pleaded not guilty to the offence today in court.

He was charged following a viral video, in which a dog appeared to have drowned at a popular beach during the past week.

28 year old Davino Shakell Howard of Bullen’s Avenue, Dalkeith Road, St. Michael has however, pleaded guilty to two separate charges – those of failing to license a dog and withholding information.

The accused has been granted $5,000 bail and is expected to reappear in the District A Magistrate’s Court next Friday, September 23rd.
