Louisiana Dog Trainers Arrested on Animal Cruelty Charges
Rapides Parish Sheriff’s Detectives have made an arrest in the animal cruelty complaint involving the owner of a Rapides Parish canine training facility.
On Thursday August 11th, 2022, Rapides Parish Sheriff’s Detectives began their investigation into complaints of a video on social media depicting a dog trainer striking a Cane Corso dog on the head with a riding crop.
Detectives began their investigation, which lead to verifying the validity of the video. From their investigation, Detectives were able to establish sufficient probable cause that supported the original complaint.
Tina Frey, 52 of Lena and Victoria Brimer, 21 of Lena, have both been charged with two counts Aggravated Cruelty to Animals.
The two women turned themselves in to the Rapides Parish Sheriff's Office after the warrants were issued, accompanied by their attorneys.
Both subjects were booked on the charges and bond was set at $10,000 on each subject. Both subjects have since been released on bond.
Detectives say this is still an ongoing investigation and more charges are possible as the investigation continues.
Rapides Parish Sheriff Mark Wood had this to say:
“I want to thank the public for bearing with us while we conducted a complete and thorough investigation into these allegations. I would also like to commend our Animal Control Section and our detectives in their investigation of this incident and to staying the course, following the evidence where it leads and not bending to pressure of a quick arrest. We always take these animal complaints seriously as we do all crimes, but we also have to investigate and make sure the alleged crime fits the law.”
