A Rome woman is facing an animal cruelty charge after she allegedly left her dog locked inside a vehicle during a festival, according to New York State Police.

Dana Studer, 54, is charged with misdemeanor animal cruelty.

Police say on Oct. 6, Studer left a dog locked inside her vehicle for nearly two hours in the parking lot of the Lafayette Apple Festival. Police say several attempts were made to find the owner over the PA system, but they were unsuccessful.
