Melody Townsend has seen some horror stories.

The facility director at the St. Joseph Bay Humane Society, Townsend is no stranger to the damage humans can inflict on animals.

But even she was not fully prepared for the arrival of a dog that the staff at the Humane Society shelter would come to call Justice – as in seeking justice for this dog and the vile way he departed this world.

Justice was picked up by Animal Control Officer Roland Jones after he had been alerted by a home health nurse working at a residence in the Five Acre Farms area.

The nurse at arrived at the home of a client to find chained in the front yard a dog.

No more than a year old, Townsend guessed.

His neck chained tightly to a stake in yard.
