WITHEE, Wis. (WSAU) -- Animal abuse charges are now pending in Clark County against a man who police say wanted to skin his dog alive.

Prosecutors say 65-year-old Charles Weissmiller from Withee attacked his dog in an attempt to skin it. The dog was found May 15th on the side of a road with a large laceration to its jaw. Police thought it had been hit by a car and took it to a vet for treatment.

Investigators later learned of Weissmiller's intent and searched his home. Two knives were found with blood and hair on them, and a garbage bag was found with pieces of flesh and black fur inside.

The dog is alive, though it required surgery and antibiotics.

Weissmiller faces a felony count of mistreatment of animals resulting in disfigurement. No court dates have been set.
