What happened to a husky named “Ryu?” According to Sunday’s publication of the Herald-Mail Media, the Teran family, of Berkeley County, West Virginia, made a horrific discovery on Saturday morning when they found their beloved dog’s gutted body hanging from their driveway gate.
Ryu (pronounced Ree-you) had disappeared from his home in Falling Waters last Thursday afternoon. The husky, who had been outside on a line, slipped out of his collar (or perhaps someone removed it) and disappeared from his family’s yard – his owners went to social media in an attempt to help bring their beloved pet home, but a happily ever after was not to be…on September 9, the tragic, heartbreaking news was posted to a Lost and Founds pets Facebook page for Berkeley County:
UPDATE – is with a sad heavy heart to report, my dog was killed. And not just killed, he was tortured, cut all the way up his stomach, the hung by his neck on our front gate. If anyone has any information on who did this, please tell me! If they would do this to a beautiful loving innocent dog, they will do this to a child.
The Berkeley County (W.Va.) Sheriff’s Office and animal control were notified about the disturbing, cruel situation. Anyone with information about this incident is asked to reach out to the authorities at 304-267-7000.
