In a shocking home surveillance video, a devastated family is trying to deal with the death of their one-and-a-half-year-old dog after a Lansing, Michigan veterinarian dumped the dog’s body on their driveway.
According to WlnsNews, the owners of the dog, who wish to remain anonymous on media reports, had taken their young pit bull named Moose to the Riverfront Animal Hospital after the dog had been repeatedly vomiting and listless. The veterinarian prescribed medicine for Moose and asked the family to report back to him the next day about their dog’s condition, but Moose was not getting any better, and in fact seemed worse.
The vet originally treating Moose suggested the family get in touch with Comprehensive Animal Hospital, and when they did, Dr. Bola Agbona stated he was going to administer intravenous fluids for the dehydrated dog. The family states Dr. Agbona told them to leave and he would be in touch with them later that day, however there was no word.
The following day was utterly devastating:
“He (Moose) was in the driveway … in a bag. It’s completely strange that the first vet he was fine and then he gets there, we leave and all of a sudden he’s gone,” stated the dog’s owner.
Dr. Agbona has a different version of what happened and explained the family could not afford medical care and the dog died while the family was standing in the lobby. He said the family drove away and he wasn’t sure what to do with the dog’s body, and tried to call the family. When no one answered, he took the dog to the family’s home and left the dog’s body in the driveway. It was Dr. Agbona’s way of “helping the family out” he stated.
There has been a complaint filed which will be forwarded to the Lansing veterinarian board to determine what will happen next.
