The Windsor/Essex County Humane Society is seeking information from the community about a serious case of animal neglect.

They say that on the evening of Saturday, August 6th, they received a call about a stray dog in the 900 block of Pelissier.

When examined by Humane Society veterinary staff, she was found to have severely necrotic infections in both ears. These infections had been ongoing for some time without treatment. Despite intensive treatment to save her ears, the amount of tissue damage was too extensive and neither could be saved.

The dog, now named Deema, is a cocker spaniel type dog. She is a female, appears to be unspayed, and approximately 1-year-old.

Anyone with information about who may have neglected Deema is asked to call the Windsor/Essex County Humane Society investigations department at 519-966-5751, ext 16 or Crimestoppers at 519-258-8477.
