Another dog thrown from moving car in PA.

Twice in the last month, dogs have been tossed from fast-moving vehicles in central Pennsylvania.

The most recent case was Monday night, when someone threw a blue-nose pit bull named Dallas from a brown Cadillac, Harrisburg police said.

Cpl. Deric Moody said a witness saw the dog thrown from the car and called police. The dog suffered an apparent broken leg and other injuries, and was being treated at a veterinary hospital near Mechanicsburg, according to the York Dispatch.

Shortly after officers arrived to interview the witness, Dallas’ owner showed up at the scene. He told police that the dog disappeared after he let him out earlier. Police believe the unattended dog was likely stolen.

On March 5, someone threw a dog from a speeding silver or gray pickup truck on Route 30 in East Hempfield Township, Lancaster County, near the Marietta Pike overpass. That dog, a shiba inu later named Sherman (pictured above), was taken to the Humane League of Lancaster County and is recovering from his injuries.

The more I read these days, the more I like dogs and the less I like people. It’s hard to imagine that these Cretins actually had mothers. Maybe it’s just bad genes, but whatever it is, it sickens and disgusts me. Those poor animals…

FWIW, according to the Humane League of Lancaster County’s website (http://humaneleague.com/news/#1922) “Sherman”‘s owner has come forward and is helping to pay the medical costs involved in his care. He has a sister Shiba Inu at home who is missing him intensely. The owner plans to apply to re-adopt her dog as soon as he is recovered from his ordeal. The monster who threw him from the speeding truck is still at large.
