FOREST GROVE, Ore. — Police arrested two Forest Grove residents accused of harming a dog found buried up to its neck outside their house.
Capt. Aaron Ashbaugh of the Forest Grove Police Department said late Monday that 75-year-old Hyrum Long is charged with animal abuse and 49-year-old Susan Johnson is accused of animal neglect.
Officers dug the dog out of the ground Friday, but it had to be euthanized.
The Oregon Humane Society said an examination of the remains showed the dog named Molly had body sores, a chronic skin disease and had not eaten for at least four days.
