WANTED: Abuser of Abandoned Dog

This mixed breed dog is gentle and loving, but someone left him for dead on Welles Mountain outside of Wyalusing—tied alongside Oak Hill Road near a vacant home. "Maybe someone wanted the dog to be found," says Timmi Rightmire, business manager of the Bradford County Humane Shelter, shown with the dog. The matted fur of the dog, estimated to be about 10 years old, and infection on its hind quarters infested with maggots, show the animal to have been the victim of tremendous neglect and then abandoned. State Dog Warden Babette Zimmer is looking for leads that may point to the identity of the dog or its abuser. Call the humane shelter at 570-888-4763 if you have information.
