Nominate West Virginia Lock Up in the Best New and Best Law Blogs

The 2009 Weblog Awards
Whoever happens to stop by this blog may wonder why I started it. Whenever I read news stories online I always like to put a face to the story. So I got to thinking maybe other people would as well. I always keep up on WV news and most stories don't have the mugshots with them so I hunt them up online and post them with the story. It's not that hard and I don't know why the state news sites don't do it

Woman faces multiple animal cruelty charges

WESTON, W.Va.- A Lewis County woman faces 55 counts of animal cruelty stemming from the seizure of nearly 70 dogs.

Pamela Jean Blubaugh of Ireland is scheduled to be arraigned Friday. She was indicted by the Lewis County grand jury.

Deputies seized the dogs in March from the 48-year-old Blubaugh's property and another location in the county.

In a March report to the County Commission, Weston veterinarian William Moodispaw said a barn and surrounding areas where the dogs were kept were "filthy, wet and in horribly foul-spelling.''

Nine dogs were euthanized. The others were taken to shelters across West Virginia.

Blubaugh had said she tried for years to find homes for the dogs but didn't get much help
