STANTON, Neb. (KCAU) – Two people were cited for animal neglect in northeast Nebraska after a puppy was found wandering in the cold.

The Stanton County Sheriff’s Office said they received a call Sunday night about an abandoned puppy that was found a rural county road northeast of Norfolk.

After an investigation, they learned that the puppy had been abandoned by Timothy Robbins, 42, and Johna Suhr, 29, who were staying in a hotel in Norfolk.

The sheriff’s office cited the two for suspicion of animal neglect. They are scheduled to appear in court in March.
