Lebanon Officials say Jennifer Anderson attempted to cover up a dog’s death by calling in a fake ‘shots fired’ call. Animal control found a 2nd malnourished dog on the property when they arrived.
Lebanon Police officers initially responded to a call of shots fired to the Burdock Street home of Jennifer Anderson on May 18th. An officer arrived, but instead of finding any shots being fired, located a deceased dog that was already stiff, and was without any food or water sources in the area.
After it was apparent no shots had been fired, which was also confirmed by a witness – who told police that Anderson made up the story in an attempt to cover up the true reason for the dog’s death, animal control was called to the scene. An animal control officer located the 2nd dog on the property, which was still alive, but extremely malnourished with ribs showing.
Jennifer Anderson was charged with aggravated animal cruelty and booked into the Wilson County Jail and released on her own recognizance. She is scheduled to appear in court in September.
Additionally, in direct contract to everything above, Anderson called Scoop Media after her mugshot and arrest were initially posted online, and told us about a dog getting stuck in a fence. A recording of that call is below
