BREVARD COUNTY, Fla. – The Brevard County sheriff walked a man into jail Wednesday morning after an animal cruelty investigation showed the owner starved his dogs to death. “He literally starved them to death over a period of several weeks,” Sheriff Wayne Ivey said during a Facebook live stream. The sheriff said a necropsy revealed the dogs had chips of wood from furniture, plastic bottles, band aids and even a plastic bag in their stomachs. The dogs also suffered severe malnutrition and a gross loss of muscle, resulting in a cruel death, investigation records show. AdAs the sheriff walked Fritsch into the jail, Fritsch is overheard saying, “You don’t know the whole story.”The sheriff dismissed Fritsch claims saying that innocent animals suffered under his care.
