A family is trying their best to cope with the death of their dog found hanged inside of a pet grooming van in Phoenix, Arizona. Sean and Amanda Wohland had hired a pet groomer from Roaming Rovers on Wednesday to bathe and trim their precious dog Max. Four hours later, Max was dead.
According to AZFamily, Amanda was told it would take a few hours to groom Max, but after four hours she became worried and went over to the van to peek inside – expecting of course to see her beloved dog ready to jump into her arms. Instead Amanda and her children were shocked.
“We looked in the van and the dog was hanging by its neck off the table. You could tell it was dead,” Amanda stated. “My daughter is 13. Her pet she’s had her whole life, dangling from a rope like a movie,” Amanda’s husband added. “How do you get that out of your head? How do you recover from that as a 13-year-old girl?”
The family banged on the door of the van, but no one answered. When they called police, who were able to break into the locked vehicle, they found the pet groomer passed out on the floor who acted incoherent and was unable to explain what had happened.
An investigation is currently underway. That pet groomer has been fired and could face animal cruelty charges. The owner of the grooming company was unable to comment because of the pending investigation. Let’s hope little Max gets some justice.
