On March 6, 2012, a Northampton County dog owner was charged with cruelty to animals. As described in The Morning Call, the 18 year old Bangor Pa resident allegedly dragged his puppy behind a pick-up truck in Bangor on Feb. 10th. The dog is an Akita and Labrador mix.

Students at Pius X High School were being dismissed when they saw a truck being driven on Third Avenue with a dog trailing behind on a leash. Bangor police investigated and ultimately were able to identify the Lehigh Valley dog owner who claimed that the dog’s leash accidentally became entangled on the truck’s hitch.
