Police: Danbury Man Used Electric Dog Collar on Child

Paula and Eduardo Montanez of Danbury are facing charges after allegedly using an electric dog collar to punish a child. Danbury Police Department

(SOURCE)  A Connecticut couple is facing charges in a child abuse case after investigators discovered that one used an electric dog collar to punish their daughter, according to police.

Eduardo and Paula Montanez, a husband and wife who live in Danbury, were arrested on Tuesday, five days after a Danbury school employee contacted the state Department of Children and Families regarding suspected child abuse.

A joint investigation by DCF and Danbury police revealed that Eduardo Montanez had used a PetSafe barking collar on his 9-year-old stepdaughter. Police said the couple was upset about the girl’s progress report, so Montanez put the bark collar around her neck and forced her to bark so the collar would shock her.

Paula Montanez, the girl’s mother, was reportedly present when it happened and did nothing to stop the abuse, police said.

According to police, the girl went back to school and told a teacher about her problems at home.

The victim told police the shock collar incident had only happened once, but marks on her neck indicated it might have occurred more often. She also told investigators the couple had beaten her several times but did not specify when the beatings took place, police said.
