Police questioning suspect in case of dog being left out in frigid cold

UTICA, N.Y. (WKTV) - Utica Police have brought a suspect in for questioning in connection with the dog being left out in the cold this week.

The man, from Utica, is not facing any charges yet, but police investigators say they are working closely with the Stevens-Swan Humane Society and Animal Control to determine the appropriate charges.

The suspect's name is not being released just yet.

The pit bull, named "Apollo" by Stevens-Swan was found early Monday morning, tied to a table on Whitesboro Street. Temperatures between Sunday and Monday dropped to 21 below zero.

The Humane Society said they chose to dub the dog "Apollo," because he is a fighter.
