Doggie daycare owner cited for animal cruelty

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO/KJCT)-- The owner of a dog daycare in Grand Junction has been cited for animal cruelty and neglect.

According to Mesa County Animal Services, their investigation into abuse is complete, and owner of Playcare Pets, Stacy Erdman, was cited at the end of May.

The case has now been turned over to the City of Grand Junction. It all stems from a video that went viral in May. The video appears to show Erdman hitting a cowering dog several times with a tube-like object.

Erdman says she never actually hit the dog but was swinging the bendable object near the dog because he'd just bit another dog at the facility.

The alleged incident occurred in February.

Erdman is scheduled to be arraigned on July 23.
