A Genesee County woman was charged with animal cruelty Saturday after she allegedly tried to feed a neighbor’s dog with food tainted with pieces of metal.

Genesee County sheriff’s deputies said Roxanne Rowe, 25 of Maple Street, Oakfield, put metal objects in a meat product and then made the meat available to the dog to eat.

Rowe also was charged with unlawful possession of marijuana. She is slated to appear in Oakfield town court on Jan. 7.
