  • Forensic evaluation of a dog with an embedded chain collar and
           corresponding wound age estimation

    • Authors: Danielle Renée Godard, Sean P. McDonough, Shelagh Copeland
      Abstract: The body of a young intact male dog was presented with an embedded chain collar around his neck as possible evidence in proceedings under the Criminal Code of Canada. A photographic record was made for court purposes. The circumference of the collar versus the adjacent unaffected neck was measured, showing the collar to be 15% shorter than was necessary to be compatible with non-injury to the dog while alive. Granulation tissue and fibrosis were grossly and histologically evaluated to help estimate the age of the wound. The granulation tissue at its deepest point was 2.0 cm. Considering granulation tissue begins formation 3–5 days post-injury and forms at a rate of 0.4–1.0 mm per day, the initial age of the wound was estimated at 23–55 days; however, given the re-epithelialization and fibrous strength of the affected tissue as well as the presence of haired skin around the links, the time estimate was determined to be more likely in the order of 4–6 months. Findings were later used in court as evidence in the charge of unnecessary pain, suffering and injury to an animal under Section 445.1(1)(a) of the Criminal Code. Testimony at the trial supported the estimated age of the wound. The owner was found guilty, fined Can$1000, placed on probation for two years, and prohibited for life from owning animals.

      Abstract: Animal pain and suffering have long been evaluated in subjective terms, due to the inherent challenge of quantifying the signs. Such resources would be integral for legal purposes, as in the pursuit of cases of suspected animal mistreatment. In that spirit, and with focus on dogs, the present study sought to evaluate the viability of bradykinin (BK 1-5) as a biomarker for pain, in canine plasma. This work was based in central Spain. The main goal of this initiative was to determine whether BK 1-5 level by itself could be used as a biomarker for dogs with pain. In total, 26 dogs that were either patients of a veterinary clinic, or that were admitted to a local shelter with known history, were sampled for this study. The dogs were categorized into one of three distinct groups, namely those: without apparent mistreatment; diagnosed with a ‘painful’ illness and medicated against it; allegedly having been mistreated or neglected (e.g., hoarding, physical abuse). Although plasma volume issues precluded detection in individual samples, BK 1-5 was detected in pooled/group samples (n = 3), at concentrations of: 2.26 fmol/ml (Gp1), 2.66 fmol/ml (Gp 2), and 1.72 fmol/ml (Gp 3). The role of sex and age of each dog, and the types of individual medication (where applicable) was also considered relative to observed sources of variation in the measurements. Lessons learned during this exploratory study are drawn from, including the opportunistic identification of other potentially promising biomarkers. Recommendations for further work and exploration are also offered.
