READ MORE:

BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WWAY) -- Brunswick County Sheriff's Office Animal Protective Services Unit has charged James Miles Butler, 27, of Pine Needle Rd., Longwood, with cruelty to animals.

Butler contacted Animal Protective Services to alert them that something was wrong with his dog, a male lab and pit mix. He indicated that the dog’s head appeared to be swollen. When the APS Officer arrived at the residence, he found the dog to have nylon lead embedded in his neck. The lead appeared to have been around the dog’s neck for a long time. The APS Officer was able to cut the dog free from the lead, under which he discovered wounds.

The dog is now under the care of a Brunswick County veterinarian for treatment of his wounds. The vet has nicknamed him "Red".

Butler is currently being held at the Brunswick County Detention Facility under a $25,000 secured bond.
