Man who left dog on Colorado mountain faces animal cruelty charge

A man who left his dog at the summit of Mount Bierstadt in Colorado will face animal cruelty charges.

The charge was filed after the Clear Creek County Sheriff’s Office completed an investigation into the “abandoned and injured” dog found on the Colorado fourteener earlier this month. 

A group of volunteers rescued the dog, a German shepherd, who was spotted wandering at an elevation of about 13,000 feet. She was carried off the mountain on Monday.

    I would have stashed my gear somewhere and carried my dog in my pack down. I would NEVER leave my dog anywhere much less...
