Dog Found With Severe Throat Wound, Shiawassee Cops Seeking Owner
An injured German Shepherd was recently found in Shiawassee County and the police are looking to the public to help track down the dog's owner.
This isn't a case of a missing pet or something. It's a case of straight-up animal abuse as the dog was found with a severe throat wound. It's believed that the wound was caused by an ingrown collar.
An ingrown collar is usually found in dogs that are neglected and have outgrown their collars. The collar is not adjusted and it embeds itself in the neck. This usually leads to a severe infection.
