Waupun Police Investigating Possible Animal Cruelty Complaint

(Waupun) The Waupun Police Department is investigating an alleged animal cruelty complaint made on social media. The incidents allegedly took place at a residence in the 200 block of Monroe Street in the city of Waupun roughly two months ago. Deputy Chief Jeremy Rasch says the incidents were not reported to law enforcement until late Thursday night while officers were handling a theft complaint at the same residence. He says once the investigation is complete they will determine if the elements of a crime were committed. A welfare check on the dog was conducted and Rasch says the animal appeared to be healthy and uninjured. A new home has been located for the dog.
