"Police: video shows activist beating dog" 'Ottumwa police said they have a shocking video that shows a local animal rights activist beating a dog with a club.'
On April 1, 2011 at approximately 4:15 p.m., the Ottumwa Police Department served a court order on Noelle Stanbridge, 41, at 327 Appanoose resulting in the seizure of all animals on the premises, including 10 dogs and 7 cats.
According to officers, Stanbridge said she trimmed the dogs nails until they bled, put peroxide on them, and wrapped them in bandages. She says its an "old trainer's trick" on stopping the dogs from digging.
Today [April 15] Judge Lucy Gamon approved a request by the city of Ottumwa to permanently remove the ten dogs from the home of Noelle Stanbridge.
Stanbridge was also charged with seven counts of failure to license dogs, three counts of failure to vaccinate dogs, and one count of operating as a dealer without a license or a permit.
At the time the city also removed Stanbridge's seven cats. The cats will be returned; the judge saw no evidence of cruelty.
