Tulsa dog found with large pipe around neck dies

TULSA, Okla. — A dog with a pipe stuck around its neck that was rescued Thursday in north Tulsa has died.

Marvel had open wounds after vets removed the pipe from his neck. The metal cut into both ends of his head and neck.

The dog reportedly died due to complications after surgery.

Workers with the Rescued 'n Ready Animal Foundation said Marvel was severely anemic and had a tick-borne disease when he was brought in. After a lot work, he was moved to Tulsa Town Vet, where he was eating and drinking.

It's unclear how the pipe got around his neck or how long it was there, but they believe it's been since at least summer.
