No, the stolen property mentioned in the article does not refer to the dog's 'nads, but the dog itself. Though I suspect the dog wouldn't mind the guy being brought up an another couple of charges for that.
A Kensal man faces charges for allegedly castrating a woman's dog. Television station WDAY reported 55-year-old Kevin Gienger was arrested on suspicion of stolen property and mistreating animals in last weekend's incident.
It goes without saying that Gienger didn't have the woman's permission to perform the ol' snippety-snip, but he claims he had good reason to do so. He said that "the dog was running wild in the neighborhood and causing a nuisance." Whereas some guy performing amateur veterinary surgery on your pets is downright neighborly, I guess.
