An Orland Park woman is facing animal cruelty charges after police said they found her emaciated and ill German shepherd wandering loose.

The woman was charged with misdemeanor animal cruelty this week after police found her severely emaciated dog wandering on Clear Creek Crossing, police said.

Garr, age 36, was arrested after police took the male dog to the Animal Welfare League in Chicago Ridge and learned from a veterinarian the animal was at least 40 pounds underweight, had mange and had been extremely neglected.
