In Highlands, New Jersey, the Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office and the Monmouth County SPCA are asking for the public’s help finding the person(s) responsible for trapping a dog inside a cage at the ocean’s edge.
The one-year-old gray and white friendly pit bull had been abandoned in a black wire cage between the beach sandy bulkhead and the water at Veterans Memorial Park. According to the press release by the Prosecutor’s Office,
“At approximately 6:15 AM, a Highlands resident was walking their dog in Veterans Memorial Park on Bay Ave, Highlands when their dog was alerted by something on the water side of the rock bulkhead. As the passerby investigated, they spotted a black wire cage with a small dog cowering inside the cage. The cage was on a small portion of sand between the bulkhead and the water. The tide was coming in and the water had reached the cage. The good Samaritan climbed over the wall and rescued the dog.”
Had the dog not been rescued from the cage, he would have drowned. Many thanks to the woman who rescued this dog. Angels do exist.
Anyone who has any information on who owns this dog or may have witnessed anything please notify the MCPO Animal Cruelty Hot Line 877-898-7297 or notify the Highlands Police Dept. at (732) 872-1224.
