Protesters Attend Massena Man's Animal Cruelty Court Appearance


Animal rights activists from the Syracuse area protested during the court appearance of the Massena man whose dog died after he allegedly left it in his car at the State Fair for several hours.

According to, about a dozen protesters showed up for 66 year old Patrick O'Neill's court appearance in the town of Geddes, where the state fairgrounds are located.
O'Neil is accused of leaving his 2 year old female black Labrador in his car for four hours on Sept. 2 while he attended the fair.
Most of the protesters were from a Facebook group called Justice for Ali, named for the dog that died.
According to the website, O'Neill asked for the case to be postponed until October because he's also facing 22 animal cruelty charges from May in which he is accused of failing to take care of his horses.
