NY couple charged with illegal pet neutering

QUEENSBURY, N.Y. (AP) A husband and wife face animal cruelty charges after police say the woman neutered a dog and a kitten for friends who didn't want to pay veterinarians for the surgery.

Authorities said both animals required extensive veterinary care after the botched amateur operations in 2011.

The Glens Falls Post-Star reports that 48-year-old Lisa Clothier and 45-year-old Harold Clothier have been wanted since 2011 on arrest warrants from Warren and Washington counties.

The warrants were issued after the couple pleaded guilty to some cruelty charges but moved from Argyle in Washington County to Florida while court action was still pending. They recently returned to New York.

The Clothiers were arrested Tuesday and sent to Warren County Jail to await a Monday court appearance. It could not be determined if they have a lawyer.
