Woman Arrested in Animal Cruelty Case

On November 11th around 3 p.m. hrs Animal Control and WFPD Officers responded to the 1600 block of 22nd Street in response to a report of a deceased dog.

Officers located a 3 to 4-month-old puppy in the backyard that was chained, emaciated and deceased.

The puppy was described as very skinny, emaciated and malnourished. Officers were unable to make contact with the resident at that time. After a thorough investigation WFPD Detectives obtained an arrest warrant for Amber Nicole Ramirez for Cruelty to Animals-Non-Livestock.

Ramirez was deceptive with detectives, but it was determined that she had tied the puppy up on a chain and left it with no shelter, water, or food for approximately five days. On November 24th at 10 p.m. the WFPD Tactical Unit located Ramirez at her residence.

    A popular Nocona restaurant is serving up food once again after shutting down from fire damage. Bear's Den Diner caught fire two months ago after a trailer only feet away caught fire and heavy winds spread it to the restaurant. Bear Weller, the owner, said the only reason his kitchen is open is that of his customers.
