In Valdosta, Georgia a woman faces charges for animal cruelty after one of her dogs fell off a farm trailer on Friday while traveling along Perimeter Road. A driver who had been traveling behind the pickup truck towing a farm trailer, saw two dogs tied up with barely enough space to stand or sit. The Good Samaritan was worried the dogs were going to slip off.
According to WtxlNews, a detective was sent to check on the situation and located the vehicle. Just as he arrived, one of the dogs fell off the trailer and was dragged. The vehicle was pulled over and the dog was transported to a nearby veterinarian to be treated for severe injuries. There has been no information released as to the dog’s condition.
Teresa Lopez, 47, was arrested and charged with animal cruelty. Had it not been for an alert citizen, the dog’s injuries could have been far worse.
