A northeastern Pennsylvania has been sentenced on animal cruelty charges for duct-taping his dog's legs and muzzle.
A judge in Pike County last week ordered 27-year-old Russell Seese of Greentown to pay a $500 fine and sentenced him to an unusual term of two days to 12 months in prison.
Seese was charged in March after state police found his female Labrador mix, Lexi, in a chicken coop with her muzzle and legs duct-taped together.
Investigators said the dog was left there with no food or water and was injured. She was taken to a veterinarian and has since recovered.
