(WBEN) Evans, NY : Evans Police Chief Ernest Maullo says that with the help of WBEN.Com, they have identified the owner of an injured puppy abandoned on Holland Road.
The incident began earlier this week when a hunter reported finding the injured pooch on the side of the road. The puppies picture was put on the WBEN website and spotted by a person who said they had sold that pup to a young man in Angola back in August. The tipster supplied the name and Evans Police realized it was the same hunter who had claimed he had found the dog.
After questioning, 27-year old William Montroy of Angola admitted the puppy was his and that he had accidently stepped on the dogs rear leg early one morning. He did not have the money to pay a Vet to take care of the dog so he came up with the story that he found the dog along side the road.
The puppy has now been treated and adopted out to a carrying family.
