Windsor Police have released more details into a case of animal cruelty that lead to a drug bust on Friday.
Police say that around 5:20pm they responded to an apartment in the 8700 block of Wyandotte Street East, after several people called police indicating they could hear noises coming from the apartment followed by a dog yelping and whimpering.
When police arrived, they found fresh blood stains on the apartment door, officers knocked on the door and a 20-year-old male opened it. Police observed blood on the male’s finger.
Police entered the apartment and saw blood on an open bedroom door, and inside the bedroom, they found marihuana plants hanging over a tarp in front of a window. Dried marihuana was also observed inside a large storage bin.
In the bathroom, police found a small lump in the corner covered with a towel. Police discovered that the lump was an injured puppy under the towel. The puppy is described as a lab/husky mix. The dog had blood-shot eyes with broken blood vessels. Police say they found a puncture wound behind the puppy’s ear that was actively bleeding.
The Humane Society was contacted and attended the scene. Arrangements were made to have the animal examined by a Veterinarian. One staple was required to close the injury to the puppy. The animal had subconjunctival hemorrhages to the eyes.
Police placed the male under arrest. Bryce Makulski, aged 20 of Windsor, is charged with Injuring an Animal and Trafficking Cannabis.
