The dog’s owners reported the attack after returning home, they also provided investigators with surveillance video of the attack.
The Sheriff’s Department posted “It is difficult to imagine how anyone could drag an animal like this and then cut its throat, leaving it to die without any feeling of guilt. There is no doubt that this dog was in much pain and suffering because of this callous act of violence.” The dog is expected to survive.
