On Thursday, January 1st, deputies responded to the area of Girlscout Rd, North of US Hwy 90W, in reference to four dogs who attacked a white male causing several injuries all over his body. The dogs responsible for the attack, and their owner, were located at 60 Orange Avenue, DeFuniak Springs. Further investigation revealed that there were multiple dogs at this location living in unsuitable conditions. A search warrant was executed at the residence/property occupied by Jessica Calvert and Geraldine Pearce. During the execution of the search warrant, approximately 40 dogs were seized to include the ones which attacked the victim. The animals were living in unsanitary conditions due to structure, feces and garbage. There were several bones of dogs located on the property as well.
The investigation is still on going and future charges are expected.
