Lincoln County officials continue to investigate case of dog abandoned along highway

Lincoln County Sheriff's deputies are still seeking information on a dog that was abandoned alongside U.S. Highway 51 in the town of Scott Monday, Jan. 21.

Just after 8 a.m. that day, cell phone callers reported the dog tied to a highway post at the County Road Q exit. A deputy found the dog but it would not allow him near it. Two deputies used an animal control pole to take the dog into custody and transport it to the Lincoln County Humane Society.

The dog had a blue collar but no tags and appeared healthy according to shelter staff. Officials are reminding pet owners that the Lincoln County Humane Society will take surrendered pets free of charge for families no longer able to care for their animals.

Last week's cold weather resulted in a dozen requests to the Sheriff's Office to check on animals in the outdoors. Many of the callers were concerned about dogs, and in one case some horses, that were outside in the cold air. In all of the cases that were investigated by deputies no unsafe conditions were found but many pet owners were spoken to about the dangers of cold weather to their animals.

Reader Poll

Should the county sell its property at the corner of U.S. Highway 8 and Wisconsin Highway 47 to Kwik Trip and move the highway department to another location?

Please select one:
Yes, a Kwik Trip on that side of town would be a great development for the community.
No, the county should wait for another offer. We donít need another Kwik Trip at that location.
Itís too soon to offer an opinion.
I donít have an opinion on this question.
