Earlier in the month, a severely emaciated pit bull named Aadya was found in an alley in the 1800 block of North Arkansas in Wichita, Kansas. The Wichita Police Department asked residents for help finding the owner that abandoned the 2-year-old dog. Now, in a bizarre turn of events, the owner has been identified.
In an interview with local news station KAKE, Vincent Currie claimed he was woken up by the sound of a neighbor’s dog barking. Currie went outside and found Aadya. “I could feel every single bone inside of her body. It was heartbreaking,” Currie said. Currie claimed a “blue or dark colored van” had dropped Aadya off in the alley around 2:00 am.
Beauties And Beasts
Currie contacted a local dog rescue, “Beauties and Beasts, Inc.” for help with Aadya, who was described as being in “extremely critical condition.” Randi Carter told local news, “Out of the thousands of dogs the Beauties and Beast has saved, I’ve never seen one so emaciated. She was almost flat, except for her ribs.”
Police called off the search for the “blue or dark colored van” after they discovered he person responsible for Aadya’s inhumane treatment was her owner, Vincent Currie. While many thought it was heroic what Currie did for Aadya, he was actually the one responsible for her severe emaciation.
Police learned on Tuesday the original 911 call came from Currie, the Aadya’s owner. According to Officer Charley Davidson, this new information “led to further investigation, which led to charges of misdemeanor animal cruelty and making a false police report.” Davidson went on to say that Currie will be appearing in court.
