Green Bay man arrested after chained dog found suffering from severe injuries

A Green Bay, Wisconsin man has been arrested after authorities found a suffering dog chained to a pole. On Friday afternoon, a concerned citizen called the local humane officer to a garage on Dousman Street and asked them to check on a dog who had a bloody face and acted as if he was in pain.

The witness told police she had been making regular deliveries to the auto repair shop and spotted the white pit bull, named Casper, health gradually declining. On Friday, she saw the dog lying on the sidewalk and momentarily thought he had died. She gave Casper water and called animal control.

According to AbcNews, humane officers found the dog to be suffering from an injury to his right eye as well as what appeared to be a severe case of mange. The dog had been left outdoors, a chain as a collar, with no shelter while temperatures exceeded 90 degrees with humidity to match. When animal control officers ordered the dog’s owner, Marco A. Rodriguez, to take his dog to a veterinarian immediately, Rodriguez refused and became agitated when officers decided to seize the dog.

The eight-month-old puppy was taken in for medical treatment and continues to be treated for an ulcer on his eye. The veterinarian staff used bolt cutters to remove the 18-inch chain the puppy wore as his collar.

 

Rodriguez, 42, has been charged with Mistreating Animals, Disorderly Conduct, and Obstructing an Officer. On Monday, he was ordered to pay a $2,500 bond and has been ordered not to have any contact with dogs.

    Marco Rodriguez proved what a hunk of maggot shit he is by his refusal to take care of Casper – this poor dog was in dire need of medical care yet Marco the Maggot denied him treatment – Thanks to the officers who took Casper away and I hope his auto repair shop is picketed and goes under – what goes around comes around Rodriguez. Thank you to the lady who alerted authorities – we need more like you.

      This POS is a Dogfighter! They don’t see dogs as family, as feeling, sentient beings. If it was up to me, Dogfighters & the scrum that patronize them would be ruthlessly exterminated…with extreme prejudice! ????

    Put this “thing” in jail after being tied up with a chain outside for a month. Then throw him in jail and let the inmates deal with his. This is what lives in our country and we should all be concerned about this.

    This piece of shit tortured this poor dog over a lengthy period of time. What a waste of oxygen. Please lock this ass up with some big dudes that love animals for the rest of his life. I know courts don’t dish that out, but god help a judge that doesn’t ban him for life on animal ownership. That judge would also have blood on their hands!
