A former North Carolina EMS worker who was charged with obstruction after mutilating a family’s dog after it was hit and killed in a car wreck was found guilty of one charge, received a 30 day suspended sentence, and was placed on unsupervised probation, according to District Attorney Greg Newman.

Newman said one of the two charges of “resist, obstruct, or delay” against Michael Purdy was dismissed by the court.

The incident happened in January in Polk County. A family’s dog was beheaded and skinned after it was fatally struck.

Purdy reportedly posted photos of the hide, thinking the dog, named Goliath, was a wolf.
