EAGLE RIVER - A dog brought to the Humane Society of Vilas County might have suffered animal cruelty.

The Humane Society of Vilas County's Facebook page says the 10-month-old puppy came in as a stray from Lac du Flambeau.

He had duct tape, electrical tap and gauze for a collar.

The dog was immediately taken to Eagle River Animal Hospital where the tape was removed.

He now has three inches of bare skin around his neck.

On their Facebook page they say he has a long road to recovery.

They are looking for a name for the pup and are asking for suggestions on their Facebook page.

You can also help by donating to the Humane Society of Vilas County.

We have not yet confirmed if this is an official case of animal cruelty.

Newswatch 12 will continue to follow this story.

- People in Rhinelander will gather for more than football at a game tonight. The goal is to help a 13-year-old who can't join his teammates right now. Bobby Towne was diagnosed with Wilson's disease at the end of August. The disease prevents his liver from filtering copper out of his blood. Bobby's illness got so bad he now needs a liver transplant. His team will donate proceeds from the concession stand and a 50/50 raffle to the Towne family. Newswatch12s will be at the game and offer a live report tonight on Newswatch 12 at Five.

We'll have the details on this story and more tonight on Newswatch 12 - news from where you live.
