An Arab, Alabama family is shocked after finding their friendly family dog tied on their porch with his mouth, nose and paws duct-taped. According to Alabama.com, Arab Assistant Chief Shane Washburn stated the dog could still breathe, and except for the cuts he sustained while the tape was removed, the dog had no other injuries.
The family had left their home on Friday afternoon and when they returned a few hours later found the dog tied on the porch.
“We don’t have any specific suspects in mind right now. We’re looking for all information that might help us find the person responsible. This is a very unusual crime,” stated Washburn. “Very seldom do we see a crime of this nature where a dog has been bound. It’s just awful.”
The person responsible for this cruel act could face face a Class A misdemeanor for animal cruelty. The charge carries a sentence of up to a year in jail. If anyone has any information about the person(s) who may have been involved with this crime, they are asked to call the Arab police at 256-586-8124.
