A 34-year-old Omaha woman faces a felony charge of animal cruelty for the death of her dog found lying in a cage, covered in its own filth.

The Nebraska Humane Society says Mashaunda Ball was arrested on Monday.

The society says Ball had called Nov. 26 to report her dog had died. Society workers who responded found the Boston terrier, Bubbles, still alive in his wire cage. He was covered in feces and had urine burns on his paw pads.

The emaciated dog was euthanized after he was taken to a veterinarian for treatment. A necropsy report says Bubbles had five sharp pieces of plastic in his stomach.

A public phone listing for Ball couldn't be found. Online court records don't list the name of Ball's attorney.
