Raymond man cited for animal neglect, court records show | Crime and courts

A Raymond man was cited and his two dogs were seized after deputies said he repeatedly failed to properly care for animals, avoided help from vets and failed to show up for surgery needed for her 7-year-old Labrador retriever, according to court records.

Jason Vosburg, 42, was charged on Tuesday with criminal negligence of an animal, which carries a sentence of up to two years in prison and a fine of up to $10,000.

The citation comes nearly two months after animal control discovered Zip, the lab, and transported him to the Capital Humane Society for treatment in mid-February, the deputies said in an affidavit for a warrant of search.

Humane Society vets noted that Zip’s right front foot was “extremely swollen” and that a bacterial infection had spread over much of the leg, raising concerns that cells from the entire leg could eventually die, Lancaster County Sheriff’s Investigator Jeremy Schwarz said in the affidavit.

Less than a month later, Schwarz said, Vosburg took Zip and Dakota, a 3-year-old boxer, to Nebraska Animal Medical Center after Zip’s infected foot bones became visible.

Dakota was already being treated for non-mobility issues, according to the affidavit.

Center staff told Vosburg that Zip would need foot surgery, and later secured a grant to cover the costs, Schwarz said. But Vosburg failed to show up for three different surgical appointments at the Omaha facility where Zip was scheduled for surgery in March, Schwarz said in the affidavit.

When the sheriff’s office contacted Vosburg at his home near Northwest 140th and West Branched Oak Roads, Schwarz said the 42-year-old was argumentative and told a deputy the dogs’ health was ‘none of his business. ” when he asked to examine the animals. .

After a Lancaster County judge signed a warrant authorizing the seizure of the dogs on April 7, deputies recovered Zip and Dakota from the property, along with Vosburg’s cell phone, according to the affidavit.

Vosburg is due in court on Thursday.
