EL PASO, Texas -- An El Paso man was jailed on animal cruelty charges after allegedly leaving his dog to starve in his backyard, police said Wednesday.

24–year-old Daniel Travon Reddick was arrested earlier this week following the discovery of the dead pet in the yard of his residence at 14157 Tierra Morena Drive.

"Reddick left his 3–year old female Husky, Duchess, to starve to death in his backyard. A necropsy conducted by a veterinarian determined Duchess suffered long-term starvation," investigators wrote in a police incident report. "A small shard of wood and a pebble were the entire contents of her stomach at the time of her death."

Reddick was booked into the downtown jail on $5,000 bond.
