Danville neighbors discover dog hanging, dead at end of cable; charges expected

From Daily Journal

Neighbors discovered a gruesome scene in Danville when a dog was found hanging with a cable around its neck.
Officials say animal cruelty and neglect charges are expected to be lodged against the animal's owner after the female pit bull mix was found dead Friday night.
Paulette Dean of the Danville Area Humane Society told the Danville Register and Bee the dog's suffering was prolonged before its death. She described the scene as "just gruesome."
The Humane Society seized a male pit bull at the same location. It also was tethered and left out in the heat for an extended period, in violation of the city's anti-tethering law.
Dean said the animal will survive.
Neither animal had shade or water.
Dean said police will be filing charges.
