Coram Man Charged With Animal Cruelty

A 26-year-old man has been accused of nearly starving his dog to death after Suffolk County SPCA investigators found the canine emaciated in his Coram home.

Michael Faulkner was arrested and charged with animal cruelty for not taking care of the family pet “Queenie,” an adult Cane Corso, at his Country Club Drive home.

Suffolk County SPCA investigators took the dog to the Grady Animal Hospital in Sayville, where a veterinarian diagnosed the dog as being “severely emaciated” and described her as “basically a skeleton.”

Arraignment information for Faulkner was not available.
