Dog left chained to pole; owner sought

By Andrew Scott, Pocono Record

Pocono Mountain Regional Police are looking for the person who chained a black female pit bull to a pole and left her without food or water.
Ellie
The dog was found Sunday in the area of Route 196 and Thornapple Lane, south of A Pocono Country Place in Coolbaugh Township. Now named Ellie, she is being cared for by the Pocono Humane Society.
"She's a good, well-trained dog," said Cory Davis of the Humane Society. "Someone obviously had been taking good care of her and then, I don't know what happened, she was just found abandoned. It's a crime that happens far too often in our area."
Anyone with information about the person who chained Ellie to the pole is asked to contact Police Officer Jim Apgar at 570-895-2400. The Pocono Humane Society can be reached at 570-606-3647 or by visiting www.PoconoHumane.org.
