Warden: Dog found in cage in Ohio lake was shot

By Associated Press Published: June 20, 2012

ST. MARYS, OHIO: Authorities say a man shot his dog after it bit someone at a campground, then dumped the dog in a western Ohio lake.

Officials who found the dog in a cage just over two weeks ago at Grand Lake St. Marys State Park, between Dayton and Toledo, at first thought the dog had drowned.

The Auglaize County dog warden says the owner has been charged with a misdemeanor because he didn't report the dog bite or the death of the dog so it could be examined.

Authorities filed the charge Tuesday against 43-year-old Mardie Biederman of Panama City, Fla. A message was left at his home Wednesday.
