Man Makes Dog Abuse Posts Online

Recent threats against dogs in Mid-Michigan have turned out to be a hoax, but the uproar caused real concerns for one Holt woman who was falsely connected with the threats.

A man who is currently living in Clinton County, posted a series of threats to adopt and then kill pit bulls from local animal shelters.

Pictures were attached to these posts of what officials say appeared to be dead animals.

The online community who saw these posts became enraged, and posted two possible addresses for the man, one of which was in Holt.

Ingham County Animal Control later found he lived in Clinton County. The investigation was then turned over to the Clinton County Animal Control.

Dewitt Township Police say after investigating, they found the whole incident to be a hoax. Police say the man was making these threats as an attempt to troll the online community.

However, a woman in Holt who now lives at the address people originally gave thinking it was the man’s address making the threats, has now reported damage to her home.

Authorities are reminding the community to report anything they find suspicious online, but not to take the law into their own hands.
