The indictment states that starting sometime between Nov. 1 and Nov. 6 the abuse of the dog began; the follow- ing week Sack also neglected to take the animal to a veterinary hospital to seek necessary care, which netted him an ani- mal cruelty charge. During that same week, between Nov. 7 and Nov. 16, the indictment stated, the abuse against the dog continued with the final act of abuse occurring on or about Nov. 17. Charging documents filed against Sack in county District Court prior to the Cir- cuit Court indictment show that his dog likely suffered from strangulation before being brought to the veterinary clinic, according to the medical judgment of veterinary doctors at the Huntingtown emergency animal hospital. Once the five-month old American pit bull had been brought in to the animal hospital Nov. 17 doctors placed him on life support, charging documents stat- ed, with “significant inflammation and swelling injuries to the dog’s neck, caus- ing trouble breathing and possible head trauma.” Doctors also diagnosed the dog, named Sosa, with “apparent paralysis” because it was not able to move its legs. Sack, charging documents stated, had told Animal Control Officer Frederick Sheckels that he had brought his dog in after an episode at his residence where Sosa had defecated in his bed and Sack had placed him in the bathtub to wash him. Sack said he went back to change his sheets when he found the dog on the floor of the bathroom with trouble breathing. A Calvert sheriff’s detective later in- terviewed Sack and said there were in- consistencies in the defendant’s story and that he had told the detective that “he had placed his arm around the dog’s neck,” charging documents showed. By Nov. 18 Sack had made several calls to the veterinary hospital where his dog was being treated, asking for Sosa back but Sheckels said he had seized the dog based on its poor condition. Charging documents also alluded to a visit by Sacks and his dog to the same Huntingtown animal hospital Nov. 7 but that visit was not followed up at the Chesapeake Animal Clinic. guyleonard@countytimes.net 8th Annual Southern Maryland Bridal Expo S unday , J anuary 14 th 11:30 - 2:30 Bay District Fire Department Braddock Hall The Grand prize will be a new wedding gown from Today’s Bride up to a value of $1,000.00.
