Dead dog discovered with duct tape around muzzle on the side of the road
Dead dog discovered with duct tape around muzzle on the side of the road in Orangeburg County. Orangeburg County deputies are trying to find the person responsible for taping a dog’s muzzle shut and causing it to die.
The Officer said with Orangeburg County Animal Control responded to a possible animal cruelty case on Monday. “It’s hard to imagine someone doing this to a dog. And says a couple riding an ATV spotted the black lab. Right away they knew something horrible had happened to it. On the tape there are claw marks on the tape where the dog was like trying to rip the tape off. Orangeburg Sheriff’s Office is assisting in the investigation. Investigators have dusted the tape around the dog’s mouth for fingerprints. They worry whoever tortured the dog is capable of doing it again. “We hope this will be a single incident and it won’t happen again.
The officer says, All cruelty is bad. It’s hard to rate them but this is a felony in my opinion. Humane Society is offering a $5000 reward for information that leads to an arrest and conviction.
