The dog’s muzzle, paws and neck were bound tightly with electrical tape.
“He did have some pre-existing dental and mouth issues that will have to be worked with once he has been stabilized for his emergency care, but we do expect him to make a full recovery”.
A man walking his dogs on December 17, came across Justice laying in the field.
“Definitely, he saved the dog’s life”, Melanie Coulter of the Humane Society said of the dog walker.
“While we are pleased that the court found all parties guilty regarding this case, we believe that had Angel’s Law been passed by legislators in Harrisburg, the more serious misdemeanor charge of animal cruelty and abuse may have seen those involved receive jail time”, Humane Society police Officer Ed Mitchell said. Because giving up Justice was so emotional for them, Michael Earl Hill, of Amherstburg, a friend of the family, offered to take the dog to WEHS for them. Much more of the tissue inside his mouth has been severely damaged than was originally apparent, and he is on a variety of medications to try to save as much of the remaining tissue as possible.
The Humane Society says Justice is a small-breed dog with a cropped tail, weighing only approximately 13 pounds.
Staff Sgt. Todd Cox said the man charged wasn’t the dog’s owner, but he was trying to retrieve the dog from the Humane Society with two other people.
Hill, 32, has been charged with wilfully causing unnecessary pain, suffering, or injury to Justice. He has since been remanded into custody.
