Man Accused Of Drugging Dog At Dog Show
I guess some people will stoop to just about anything to get an edge on the competition. Take Ralph Ullum. He's charged with animal cruelty because he supposedly fed a dog benadryl to keep it from placing in a dog show.
Ralph was at the Pennsylvania show helping his girlfriend with her Siberian Husky. Another Husky, also in the running must've been too close for comfort. That's when Ullum decided enough was enough.
Pixie's (the rival Siberian Husky) handler, Jessica Plourde of Newark Valley, N.Y., noticed a crushed pink pill near Pixie's cage on the second day of competition, according to reports.
Witnesses said they had seen the man feeding and petting the rival dog when it was isolated.
Authorities say they believe the pink crushed pill found near Pixie's cage was Benadryl, an over the counter allergy medicine that can cause drowsiness.
Ullum admitted to using a restroom where some crumpled paper towel with a white substance and pieces of pills were found. He, however, denied the allegations.
He's due in court next week. We'll assume the dog had a nice nap and will be rarin' to go next time.
How would you react if this was your dog?
