He is…a veterinarian who lives in New Canaan, CT and works in the Bronx.
The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals of Westchester tells the LoHud that Andrew Manesis, 66. a veterinarian at Throgs Neck Animal Hospital in the Bronx, took payments to properly dispose of 26 euthanized cats, eight dogs and a lizard.
Instead, they say, he dumped them alongside the Hutchinson River Parkway over several months.
He faces misdemeanor charges of petit larceny, scheme to defraud and a violation of environmental code. His court appearance is scheduled for June 5.
