Police: Animal cruelty suspect may have flipped pets

When criminals obtain a dog or cat illegally, they sell it quickly to an unsuspecting buyer.

SKOWHEGAN, Maine (NECN) -- A woman under investigation for animal cruelty and operating an illegal pet shop may have been involved in "pet flipping," according to police in Skowhegan, Maine.
 
Nicole Bizier, 32, of Skowhegan, was arrested last week and charged with theft by deception, animal cruelty, and operating an illegal pet shop.
 
Skowhegan Police Detective Katelyn Nichols told the Morning Sentinel that it appears Bizier was involved in pet flipping, or receiving a free or stolen animal and selling it online for profit.
