This is NOT a Collar

We're hoping one or more of our readers might be able to tell us what this "dog collar" is used for. Has anyone seen one before?

There have been suggestions from a control collar for something like a bait dog used to train fighting dogs. Or "a homemade collar that some heartless person put on her to keep her from getting through the cattle fences. " But no one has been able to find any information on what or why.

Local Animal Control says he thinks it is just "something cruel" and this might be the case. We all know there are more than enough cruel folks who like to hurt animals, but we're all wondering -- especially the folks who found the dog wearing this -- whether there is a particular reason for this type of cruelty.

You can leave a comment or email us at jansfunnyfarm at gmail dot com. (You know how to smoosh it together.)

A dog was found in the middle of highway traffic with this homemade PVC collar bolted around her neck.



It had been there awhile because the hair around her neck is all broken where it was. It had to be unbolted to get it off.


The whole pipe from end to end is 36 inches long. The bottom half hanging down is about 18 inches long. The top part that stuck above her head is about 10 " tall.


The pipe -- only 4 1/2" inside diameter -- was bolted around the neck of a dog of this size. It was a very tight fit. It was unbolted to take it off the dog wearing it and hung loosely -- unbolted -- with the ends not even meeting around the neck of this dog to give you an idea of what it looked like when used as a "collar."


If you have seen anything like this before, please let us know.

  11. There just seems no end to the ways humans find to inflict cruelty on animals. We are so sad and tired of it. Poor, poor dog.

    Happy New Year to Jan and all of the Funny Farm residents.

  12. That poor dog. How cruel. With the joiners at either end, it looks as if it had been attached to something else to immobilise her. I hope whoever did it gets caught, but punishment will catch up with them eventually.

  15. How cruel.
    We think it looks like something used for dogfighting. Or maybe some moron decided to just make their own dog "collar" like that to be a jerk.
