The discovery of a partially burned dog, found in Davenport, Iowa, has prompted an investigation by the local authorities. The dog, believed to be a Rottweiler, was found by public works employees in the area of Miller Ave. and South Concord Ave. last Wednesday (July 19), reported Monday’s KWQC News.
A haunting Facebook post provides more sad details about the disturbing case of what appears to be animal cruelty. Facebook user Brandi Anderson wrote:
The garbage men called police who came and said the dog was obviously burned alive as you could see where the poor thing had been running while on fire.
WQAD News reported that animal control was called out to the location and no microchip was discovered in the dog’s body. Now the Davenport Police are hoping that someone will come forward with information. Anyone who knows something about this dog, or what took place, is asked to call (563) 326-6125.
