Investigators found that Tandle had failed to provide proper veterinary care for the dog’s injured eye, worsening its condition. The Town of Junius Dog Control Officer assisted in seizing the dog and transporting it to a veterinary clinic, where the dog’s eye was removed due to the severity of the injury.

Tandle was issued an appearance ticket and is scheduled to appear in the Town of Junius Court on May 20, 2024, to face the animal cruelty charge.
