A Camden man was recently arrested for animal abuse.  The abuse incident resulted in the dog dying on Monday.  Ian West who is age 25 faces a felony aggravated animal cruelty charge.  West is being accused of leaving the dog Lainey left in a cage outside and severely emaciated.  The cage was really rusty and old and it was located at the end of the drive way.  Lainey only weighed 15 pounds when she was supposed to weigh at least 45 pounds.  According to the Rome Humane Society Lainey was not fed or given water for months.  Police found the dog last week and hoped to save him but however she passed away on Monday.  I believe that West should get in major trouble for what he has done to poor Lainey.
