Authorities in Charleston, West Virginia, are hoping that someone will provide a tip to lead them to the person responsible for hanging a dog from a tree. According to ABC On Your Side News, witnesses in the area heard a dog squealing in pain shortly before the body was found.

The dog’s pained cries led witnesses to a wooded area near the railroad tracks…there, they discovered a female pit bull hanging from a chain in a tree. The dog’s body was taken to the Kanawha Charleston Humane Association for a necropsy.

Surveillance video which was obtained shows a man walking a dog, believed to be the same dog who was found dead, shortly before the cruel crime took place. The man in the video can be seen walking the pit bull, and then the man can be seen walking without her in footage which was recorded approximately 10 minutes later.

    Well This IS ANOTHER CASE of HOW BARBARIC & CRUEL a Large NUMBER of People in this sector ARE.. My stepfather moved from Clarksberg W.V. back in the 1920’s to Rifle Colorado and lived his entire life out here only going every few years to visit family … he loved without condition ALL animal’s and he told us horror stories as to how bad abuse and neglect was then .I figured it has something to do with the depression, moonshiner’s , and the times… APPARENTLY NOT much has changed down there in the last Hundred years!!! SAD TO SAY!!!

    O post this maggot’s picture on TV and offer a reward so someone will turn him in – this fucking bastard needs to be caught NOW! Not that the freaking justice system will do much of anything to him – they are so lack in prosecuting these abusers – we just had the exact same thing done in my state – some hunk of pond scum hanged a pit bull over a week ago and this poor animal was not noticed until this past Tuesday – these bottom feeders need to be found, held responsible and given the massive dose of street justice they so well deserve. These dogs are innocent victims of subhuman puke.
