WILMINGTON, N.C. - HANOVER COUNTY, NC (WCBD) - A North Carolina man has been charged with four counts of animal cruelty after abandoning his pet fish.
Animal investigators say Michael Hinson left his malnourished fish, Oscar, to die.
After the Hanover County resident was evicted from his home, a civil unit found Oscar with poor water quality in his tank.
The fish was taken to a local fish store where they discovered a "hole in the head,” a disease that is fatal if left untreated.
Oscar's condition led investigators to their first animal cruelty case against a fish owner.
Ethan Lane says Oscar is now eating and is getting the proper nutrition he needs.
