DECATUR COUNTY, GA (WALB) -

By LeiLani Golden - bio | email

DECATUR COUNTY, GA (WALB) – Decatur County Sheriff's investigator arrested a man they say neglected seven pit bulls so severely, two of them had to be put down.

46-year old Terry Bernard Jackson is charged with seven counts of animal cruelty, misdemeanors punishable by up to one year in prison each.

Jackson confessed to leaving the dogs tethered with little room to move and even less to eat or drink for weeks. Two of the malnourished pit bulls had to be put down earlier this week and more may follow. Humane Society workers say most of the dogs are too aggressive to be adopted.

Jackson remains in the Decatur County jail on a $9,500 bond.

Even if he pays that, he faces two other state probation violations.
