CLINTON, Iowa -- A man charged with multiple counts of animal neglect has pleaded guilty.
Thomas Mauk was charged in connection with an investigation into neglected and abused pit bulls at a home in Clinton, Iowa. In February of 2018, eight dogs were rescued from a Clinton, Iowa home. The animals were found covered in feces and blood.
Court records show that on Friday, February 1, Mauk entered a written plea of guilty.
Mauk was the second person charged; previously Teresa Muhs was charged. Muhs pleaded guilty in 2018, and was ordered to serve 15 days in jail with a one year probation.
The dogs involved in the neglect case were taken in by the humane society and were adopted or sent to other rescue facilities.
