November 10, 2020

An unidentified individual was charged with six counts of cruelty to animals and six counts of animal abandonment, after six puppies were left in a plastic storage container with its lid sealed closed with duct tape on Nov. 2, the Maui Humane Society said Sunday.

Two puppies died after hours passed in the hot sun and before a volunteer discovered the container. The remaining four puppies were rushed inside and received medical attention from the Maui Humane Society’s veterinary team, according to the Humane Society’s news letter.

Maui Humane Society Officer Miranda Boam tracked down surveillance footage to get the license plate of the individual, Jenny Miller, director of development and marketing for Maui Humane Society, said in an email Sunday.

Then officers Denise Riggs and Kaitlyn Mason went to the address of the individual and presented the person with six charges of animal abandonment and six charges of animal cruelty.
