Germantown Man Charged with Animal Cruelty After Beating and Blinding a Dog in his Care

May 30, 2018

A Germantown man is facing three counts of animal cruelty after police found the dog left in his care bleeding from the head. Police say the man beat the dog so severely that the dog has been left blind in both eyes.

   On Thursday, May 24, Montgomery County Police 5th District officers arrested Herbert Allen Green, 75, of the 20900 block of Father Hurley Boulevard in Germantown, on three charges of animal cruelty.

   Fifth District Police Officers and Animal Services Division Officers responded to a call on April 24, for suspected animal cruelty. Once on scene, responding officers observed a dog identified as “Benji,” a small, neutered, male poodle-mix, that was bleeding from the head, lethargic, and in need of immediate medical attention.

   Benji was transported to receive lifesaving care at a local veterinary hospital. He was examined by a veterinary ophthalmologist who diagnosed recent blindness in both eyes caused by recent trauma, a condition which will be permanent, said police.

   On May 7, Green was interviewed by investigators and admitted to striking Benji. Green also stated that he was aware that Benji was injured, but did not provide him with the needed medical care, said police.

   Green was charged with cruelly beating an animal, inflicting unnecessary suffering or pain on an animal, and failing to provide an animal with necessary veterinary care, while the animal is in a person’s charge or custody.

   Green was released on an unsecured personal $2,000 bond.
