A 20-year-old Baton Rouge man said he didn't know his dog had died after officers found the dead dog, still tethered, along with two emaciated dogs at his home Tuesday, according to a Baton Rouge police report.

Police went to Louis Brown's home at 324 Brice St., Baton Rouge, after someone anonymously called in an animal cruelty complaint. Brown was booked into Parish Prison on one count of aggravated animal cruelty.
