MANSFIELD, Ohio - The Humane Society of Richland County responded to a call on Wednesday involving five puppies, four of which had their throats cut.
On Wednesday, police received a call from a 38-year-old woman whose husband Christopher Vandenberg, 38, of Mansfield, was taken to OhioHealth Mansfield Hospital for an attempted suicide.
When she went to let their puppies out of their bedroom, she discovered three puppies had cuts on their throats and a fourth one had an injured left back leg, the police reports says.
The woman said she wasn't home for two days and left the puppies in the care of her husband. Looking back through her text messages, she found one that was distorted but she understood it as he "tried cutting the puppies" throats, according to the police report.
