Man charged with 3 counts of animal cruelty

By Angel McCurdy, Northwest Florida Daily News

A 30-year-old man was charged with three counts of felony animal cruelty earlier this month.
According to a Santa Rosa County Sheriff's report, three malnourished dogs were found on property that belonged to Michael Pace.
The first dog was an emaciated black female pit bull that had been left in the rain.
The second dog, which was a black male pit bull, was chained to a fence and also severely thin. That dog, according to the report, was so thin it could barely carry the weight of the chain.
The third dog was a pregnant gray-and-white pit bull.
All the dogs were confiscated.
"The dogs were so thin that they were taken to animal hospitals for immediate care," the report stated. "They were treated for starvation and malnourishment."
Pace, who was already in jail on an unrelated charge, told deputies only the female dogs were his, but that he was responsible for all three of them.
His bond was set at $5,000.
