This is a bittersweet story of a dog, now named Lucky, who was chained to a car and dragged for over a mile by her previous owner in Eaton Rapids, MI. Although he says “it was an accident” and he didn’t realize she was chained to the car, what is wonderful is that Lucky is recovering from her injuries, has been adopted by the people who saved her, and the media is giving this case the attention it deserves. Sadly, I feel that the prosecutor under charged the case as a misdemeanor (90-day penalty). This incident happened in the county just south of where I was a prosecutor in Michigan. This case should have been charged under Michigan’s 4-year felony law for torture, maiming and disfiguring. Nonetheless, whether it was an accident or not, she is one Lucky dog!
