BAY MINETTE, Ala.

Bay Minette Police Officers say they responded to Jacobee Court for a residential alarm call. Officers found a bulldog tied to a tree home’s backyard. According to BPD, a rope of approximately 3 feet was embedded into the dog’s neck.

Officers say the dog was promptly removed from the tree and taken to a local veterinarian’s office. The dog is currently undergoing treatment and evaluation to determine adoptability.

The homeowner, Ella Dee Adams was arrested for animal cruelty. Adams was taken to the Baldwin County Sheriff’s Correction where she later posted a bond and released from jail, says BPD.

The animal cruelty investigation prompted officers to acquire a residential narcotics search warrant for a residence on South Hoyle Street. Officers say they discovered marijuana, digital scales, and drug paraphernalia items indicating drug distribution activities were happening at the home.

According to BPD, officers arrested Wanda Defaye Adams for Unlawful Possession of Marijuana 1st, Unlawful Possession of Drug paraphernalia, and two counts of Endangering the Welfare of a Child.
