The “Worst Animal Cruelty Case He Has Investigated,” According to a Shiawassee County Animal Control Deputy | Latest News!

SHIAWASSEE COUNTY, Mich. (WJRT) – After discovering two killed dogs behind a locked door in Bancroft, Shiawassee County Animal Control Deputy Kirt Stechschulte said it was the “worst animal cruelty case he has investigated.”

The Shiawassee County Sheriff’s Office claimed in a Facebook post on Tuesday that an animal cruelty complaint was filed in December 2021, claiming that the renters of the residence discovered two deceased dogs in an advanced state of decay behind a locked door.

According to the report, the callers stated that they were renting the Bancroft property and that they broke into the locked room when a foul odor became worse.

They discovered the two dead dogs, one of which appeared to have been partially eaten by the other.

The dogs are believed to have died before the original callers moved in, according to Shiawassee County Animal Control.

Jordan Hoisington, the pets owner, was discovered after an investigation into the slain dogs.

Hoisington has been charged with two felony charges of Animal Torturing/Killing. On March 1, 2022, she was charged in the 66th District Court with a bond of $7,500.


A Probable Cause Conference is scheduled for March 23, 2022, followed by a Preliminary Exam on March 29.
