New York: Colonie police investigate possible dog abuse after pit bull found with infected neck injury from an embedded collar

NEW YORK -- Town police are investigating possible animal abuse involving two dogs found in a field next to Ann Lee Pond.

A passing driver found the two dogs at 11:50 a.m. Thursday at 776 Watervliet Shaker Road, Colonie police said.

Both dogs were pit bulls. One was an unneutered brown and white male with a deep cut to his neck. The other was an unspayed female, chocolate- and white-colored, with evidence she had previous litters.


The male had a deep, approximately 6-inch-long, laceration to its neck, and police said the wound was infected.

The female was underweight and had some skin and coat conditions.

The dogs are being cared for at the Latham Animal Hospital.


Police said they do not known whether the dogs were mistreated or where they were living.
