Conway man charged with animal cruelty

A Conway man has been charged with animal cruelty after police found two dogs in poor health at his home, according to Catina Hipp, Conway Police public information officer.

Clevland Fladger, Jr., 55, of Conway, was charged with animal cruelty after officers responded to his home Thursday after receiving an anonymous call about the dogs, Hipp said. An animal control officer found four dogs in the back yard of the home.

Two of the dogs seemed to be in good health, but two others were severely undernourished, Hipp said. One dog appeared to be under weight and dehydrated, and another was extremely emaciated from apparent starvation.

Both animals were picked up and taken to the county animal shelter for evaluation.

Fladger was issued a citation for animal cruelty, and is set to appear in court on the charge on Feb 23, Hipp said.
