Teen Charged For Abandoning Guinea Pigs; 1 Left In Mailbox

EMPORIA, Kan. (AP) — An eastern Kansas teenager is facing animal cruelty charges related to three guinea pigs supposedly abandoned in rural areas, including one found in a mailbox.

Lyon County prosecutors have charged the 17-year-old girl with three counts of animal cruelty. Her name has not been released. A case involving an 18-year-old woman has been referred to prosecutors for consideration of possible charges.

Police say one of the guinea pigs was found April 26 in a mailbox and was taken to an Emporia animal shelter, where she has been named Rosita.

Two other guinea pigs reportedly abandoned in woods have not been found.
