ST. CATHARINES, ON (January 23, 2014 )

On January 23, 2014 The Lincoln County Humane Society Officer picked up an injured dog after it was found wandering on Kaye Street, in Thorold. The dog, a German Shepherd, male, approximately 1 year old had obvious trauma and was immediately transported to a St. Catharines veterinarian.

Late this morning, during their investigation, LCHS officers determined that the female who called the LCHS to report the dog, was in fact the mother of the owner and both females conspired to lie to the Humane Society about ‘Tyson’. The attack suffered by ‘Tyson’ was inflicted on him by other dogs in the home.

The investigation is now focusing on whether or not charges will be laid and what those charges might be. “We are happy for Tyson’s sake that he was helped when he needed it and we look forward to finding him a new forever home” said Kevin Strooband, Executive Director.

The LCHS also wishes to thank the public for their ongoing support of Tyson and for all of the well wishes.

Meanwhile Tyson is available for adoption and the LCHS is accepting applications at until Friday, February 7, 2014, at 3PM.
