-A Marshfield man charged and sentenced for throwing puppies in a garbage can must pay the Marshfield Area Pet Shelter for taking care of the animals.

At the end of February, Marshfield Police were dispatched to complaint of the sound of kittens coming from a garbage can in the 800 block of E. 4th St. Upon arrival, it was learned that the sound was coming from 8 newborn puppies which had been discarded in a garbage bag and trash can at 813 E. 4th St. The bag was removed and the puppies were transported to the Marshfield Area Pet Shelter. Contact was made at the residence and, subsequently, Robert Wild was arrested and transported to the police department. During a court appearance in September, Wild was found guilty of, due to a no contest plea, intentionally abandoning animals. Another charge was dismissed and read in.

Wild was sentenced to 30 days in jail and 1 year of probation. During a court appearance a week later, the judge determined that Wild may not own any new animals for 5 years, but he may keep the animals he currently has. Finally, during a restitution hearing yesterday, the judge determined that Wild must pay back the $5,018.95 it cost for the shelter to care for the puppies. The puppies were all adopted earlier this year and were even featured on Inside Edition.
