MASON CITY, Iowa (AP) - A 62-year-old Mason City man has been accused of using a hammer to beat his dog.

Police say George Harrington is charged with animal torture and other misdemeanor violations. Harrington didn’t immediately return a message Thursday from The Associated Press. Online court records don’t list the name of an attorney who could be contacted to comment on Harrington’s behalf.

Mason City police say officers checking a report about an injured dog at Harrington’s residence found an injured boxer mix. Police say the dog was taken to a veterinarian, who euthanized it because of head injuries that the vet said were caused by a hammer.
