Case photos include graphic images that some may find disturbing. Viewer discretion is advised.

The situation started when the dogs leg had been badly broken. The owner attempted to splint the leg with popsicle sticks and when that did not work, he cut the dogs leg off with a pair of scissors.

Humane Societys chief veterinarian Dr. Aleisha Swartz served as the key expert in the case and the pet owner was sentenced to 60 days in jail and a year of probation.

Special thanks to the Prosecutors Office for their willingness to champion this case.
