Dubuque County Man Arrested For Hanging Dog

A Dubuque County man was arrested this week after authorities say he hung his dog on a ladder in a barn. The incident happened on Labor Day. A woman told the sheriff’s office that she walked into her barn and saw 59 year old Mark Meneguin hanging his dog from a ladder. The animal survived. Deputies found Meneguin and the dog walking along a road a short time later. He told them that he lost his cool, because his dog was not listening to him. Meneguin is charged with animal torture. While he admitted to hanging his dog, Meneguin says the  animal’s back legs never left the ground.
