CONWAY, Ark. (KTHV) - A Conway man is charged with animal cruelty after allegedly beating dogs with a baseball bat.
Conway police say they received a report about a man, later identified as Michael Woole, allegedly beating dogs in the head with a baseball bat. A man running in the area said he heard dogs crying last Friday near German Lane. While the runner called police, he says Woole put the dogs in a truck and drove off.
Conway Animal Welfare checked the scene and found blood on the property. Police confronted Woole days later, when he said he was not beating the dogs, but moving them to a different pen using a shovel.
Woole is charged with two felony counts of cruelty to animals.
