A Philadelphia police officer was charged with animal cruelty Thursday, four months after investigators believe he put his starving pit bull mix into a trash bag and abandoned her at a park.

Authorities charged Officer Michael Long, 33, with multiple counts of animal cruelty following an investigation by the Pennsylvania SPCA and the police department’s Internal Affairs Unit.

Long, an 11-year veteran of the police department, has been suspended from the force for 30 days with the intent to dismiss, police said in a statement to The Philadelphia Inquirer.

Pennsylvania SPCA director of Humane Law Enforcement Nicole Wilson told KYW-TV that the abandoned pit bull was micro-chipped, which led investigators to Long.

Officers with the Pennsylvania Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals’ Humane Law Enforcement team found the dog in November after a passer-by spotted her head poking out of a garbage bag in Wissahickon Valley Park. Authorities brought the severely underfed dog to the Pennsylvania SPCA’s shelter.

The dog was found just before Thanksgiving and named Cranberry. Veterinarians estimate she is around 2 years old.

Veterinarians caring for Cranberry were unsure in November whether she would recover from her previous owner’s lack of care, but she survived and was adopted in December, Pennsylvania SPCA officials said.

“She is currently living in a home in Malvern soaking up life as a couch potato very happy and most of her updated pictures come back exhausted by how happy she is,” Wilson told KYW-TV.

The Brookhaven Police Department posted on its Facebook page Thursday about how Officer Bell met a woman, identified only as Mary Anna.

The elderly woman told Bell she went to a nearby dentist for a painful loose tooth and wanted it removed.

For whatever reason, the dentist told Bell that Mary Anna was being a difficult patient and he did not want to treat her.

Bell went above and beyond the call of duty and made an appointment with another dentist in Brookhaven.

Bell even followed Mary Anna in his patrol car as she drove over to the dentist's office, and he walked her in to make sure she got there OK.

“Mary Anna was happy to get her tooth removed,” the Facebook post said. “Officer Bell is our newest officer in his second week with Brookhaven.”

Woman sends thank you note to police after they arrest her daughter

It’s hard to be a parent when your child gets arrested. And not everyone takes it well.

But one mother showed gratitude to police who arrested her daughter in Florida while she was on spring break.

The Walton County Sheriff’s Office posted the text of a letter it received last week on its Facebook page. In the note, a mother thanks the department for arresting her 19-year-old daughter for underage drinking.

“Yesterday, my daughter was one of the thousands of spoiled spring breakers ‘living it up’ on the beach,” she wrote. “She got arrested for underage drinking. She was holding a can of beer on the beach. A stupid move that I warned her about before she left, but I’m just her mother, so ‘in one ear and out the other.’”

She said the arrest taught her daughter a lesson, and she thanked the officers for their professionalism.

“The arrest scared the hell out of her, and I’m hoping she learned her lesson. The reason that I am sending this is that every officer that I talked to or that I could hear in the background talking to her was so nice! Firm, but nice,” the mother wrote. “For a mom hundreds of miles away, that was very reassuring. I know you all have to deal with this on a daily basis, which must be completely annoying, and I'm very sorry my daughter added to your workload yesterday. They say you always have one child that makes you go grey early and she is mine! Thank you for saving me a few more grey hairs last night.”
