Dog with embedded collar euthanized, owner charged

Daily Staff Report

Warren County deputies took a female pit bull to be euthanized on Oct. 1 and later charged the owner with animal cruelty that causes a pet's death after they found it running loose with a collar embedded in its neck, a sheriff's office spokesman said.

Lt. Gordon Foster said a deputy was called at 2:53 p.m. on Sept. 30 to investigate a report of a dog running at large with a large amount of blood around its neck near the Brinklow Trailer Park off of Strasburg Road. The blood was found to be coming from a collar that had been allowed to become embedded in the dog's skin, Foster said.

Foster said authorities took the dog to a veterinarian to have it euthanized the next day.

The owner, Joshua Wayne Peck, 23, of Front Royal was charged on Nov. 10.
