Bond set for man accused of abuse

CORTLAND — A man accused of abusing his 6-month-old puppy pleaded not guilty Wednesday in Central District Court to several charges, including animal abuse and menacing.

Collin Macaulay, 19, was arrested Monday after neighbors called police to report he was abusing a pit bull mix puppy. He was arraigned via video and his bond was set at $155,000. He remains at the Trumbull County Jail pending a hearing next month.

The dog suffered from broken bones and abrasions, according to Cortland police. The six-month-old puppy was taken by the Animal Welfare League.

Police said Macaulay was charged with menacing because he was knocking on the door of his neighbors and threatening them for calling police.
