MARSHFIELD, Wis. (WSAW) -- A 44-year-old Marshfield man is facing several charges including mistreating an animal causing its death.
Kevin Strey is free on a $10,000 signature bond.
An investigation began in October when a social worker became involved. During that investigation police learned Strey’s dog, a dachshund named Dobby had been taken to the vet after Strey said it fell off the bed. A veterinarian cited in court documents stated the dog’s injuries were not the result of a single incident.
Investigators said when the vet was going to sedate Dobby in order to do some x-rays and testing, Dobby died.
Strey is charged with two counts of child abuse, mistreatment of animals resulting in death and disorderly conduct.
