BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KGET) — A hearing for a woman charged with felony animal cruelty in dragging a dog from a scooter has been postponed to Dec. 4.
Elaine Rosa appeared in court Monday for a brief hearing where she agreed to the postponement.
In January, security camera footage captured a person later identified as Rosa riding a Bird scooter and dragging a dog through a Bakersfield neighborhood before being confronted by bystanders.
The dog, named Zebra, received medical treatment. Rosa is not the dog’s owner.
Rosa worked as a contracted psychologist at Kern Valley State Prison. Her contract was terminated a day after the incident.
