Abuser attaches straps to dog’s bones
The Humane Society of the United States is offering $2,500 to anyone with information that leads to the abuser’s conviction.
The brown terrier dog was brought to the Humane Society of South Mississippi last Wednesday, May 4, after being found near the intersection of 34th Street and 20th Avenue in Gulfport, according to WLOX.
Photos released by Gulfport Police shows where a child restraint latch was attached to the dog’s legs after being inserted through the skin around the bone. Investigators say the latches appear to be from a child’s car seat.
The male terrier also has scratches and wounds on his face and head, legs and belly.
The dog, who had no microchip or identification, is being cared for at the Humane Society in Gulfport.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Gulfport Police Department Animal Control Division at (228) 868-5959.
