In response to calls from several residents reporting an animal in an apartment that sounded as though it were being beaten or otherwise abused, an animal services officer met with the dog’s owner. The mixed-breed dog appeared to be in good shape, and it was determined that the dog was being crated while the owner was away from the apartment. The canine would howl and cry when inside the crate. The officer’s findings were passed on to the callers.
