BENTON TOWNSHIP — Life was looking grim when a dog later called “Icabod” arrived at Berrien County Animal Control earlier this summer.

Director Tiffany Peterson said that the German shorthaired mix was found with a cable embedded in his neck in the Niles area. The cable had been there so long that maggots were in the wound.
