SHIPPENSBURG, Pa. (WHTM) — A Shippensburg man is charged with animal cruelty and neglect after police said his dog was found hidden in a shed and locked in a wire cage without food or water.
The charges against 21-year-old Robert Dunbar were filed after police were called to a home in the 100 block of East Burd Street for a report of possible animal abuse.
Officers said the 2-year-old brindle pit bull-mix was obviously stressed, severely malnourished, and had open wounds near its tail. Investigators suspect the dog spent several days in that condition.
The dog was removed and taken to Cumberland Valley Animal Shelter for treatment.
