Wis. man gets 30 days for abandoning friend's dog


SHEBOYGAN, Wis. (AP) -- A Sheboygan County man who pleaded no contest to intentionally abandoning a friend's dog has been sentenced to 30 days in jail.

A judge on Tuesday also fined Kevin C. Cantrall $265.

Prosecutors say the 45-year-old Glenbeulah man agreed to watch the Labrador/collie mix in December while the owner was in the hospital.

The owner told investigators Cantrall complained that the dog kept relieving itself in the house. The man told Cantrall to contact a kennel or the Humane Society, but says Cantrall never followed up with him.

A mail carrier found the dog a few weeks later, describing it as dirty, tired and confused.

The Sheboygan Press says Cantrall admitted to a deputy that he abandoned the dog outside a farm.

A message left with Cantrall's defense attorney Friday was not immediately returned.
