A Calcasieu woman has been arrested for the cruelty of an animal after a deceased dog was allegedly found in her home. 

On October 2, 2017, deputies with Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office were called to a home in Lake Charles in reference to a dog found dead in a home. 

Upon arrival, deputies say they found the dog, located inside a small crate without water. Officers say the dog was extremely emaciated. 

A necropsy on the animal was done and doctors later advised that the dog died as a result of dehydration and starvation due to a foreign object found in the animal's stomach. Doctors also reported that the starvation was due to months of improper nutrition. 

Detectives arrested the owner, Camilla Ross of Lake Charles, shortly after she arrived home. Ross said that she left home on September 24 to go out of town. Officers say that Ross state that she left the dog with food but forgot to leave any water. She also allegedly stated that she was aware that the dog was not eating, but did not bring it to the veterinarian. 

Ross was arrested and booked into the Calcasieu Correctional Center and charged with aggravated animal cruelty.  She was released later that evening on a $5,000 bond
