Three women charged after girl was found with an electric dog collar on her neck :: WRAL.com
A neighbor called the police after a girl showed up on her doorstep with a dog collar around her neck.
I can’t understand, you know, a dog collar is your lost dog. That’s all I could find. And when she said she was shocked. That was it. Total surprise. That’s how Karen Volek felt when a 13-year-old neighbor arrived at her house last week. It was the middle of the day. My doorbell rang frantically and I opened the door and help me, help me, help me. They shock me and because I’m confused I see the dog college. He puts it in my hand and I said is your dog lost? And she says, no, no, they shock me by showing the marks on her neck. Volek says the dog collar was still buzzing in his own hands. I couldn’t figure out who puts a dog collar on first, who puts it on their dog let alone a child, relax, dial 911. The police responded. She was taken to a pediatric hospital for examination. She was never brought home and she is now in foster care somewhere in Stratford. The next day. Police have charged three of the girls’ parents with aggravated assault, child neglect and endangerment. She was skinny as around after these criminal complaints. The girl was also deprived of proper clothing and not given enough food. I can imagine him starving, but everyone else in the house is overweight. So how do you like it for girl protection? We do not identify his family members. Meanwhile, Karen Volek and her family haven’t been able to get rid of it for days and still can’t sleep. That’s what we think about. She just prays for justice, personally. Have I ever been shocked by a dog collar? No, but I hope the judge who decides to do this, tries.
