Long Island Woman Charged After Vets Find Rocks in Starving Dog's Stomach: SPCA

A Long Island woman was arrested after vets found rocks in her emaciated pit bull's stomach, authorities say. 

Madison Cammarata of East Patchogue faces misdemeanor animal cruelty charges after the 7-year-old dog, named Duncan, was brought to the Guardians of Rescue shelterin May, according to the Suffolk County SPCA. 

Veterinarians discovered that Duncan had the stones in his belly and euthanized him because of his poor prognosis. 

Cammarata, 22, was arrested Sunday. She's due back in court in September. 

It's unclear whether Cammarata has a lawyer who can comment on the allegation. There was no immediate response to a message left Monday at a possible phone number for her.
