In a tragic case of animal neglect and cruelty, authorities are asking for help identifying the person who left a dog tied to a tree in a snowstorm as icicles hung from his matted coat. Suffield police found the dog on Thursday tied to a tree off a trail in Stony Brook Park.
According to the Suffield Animal Control Facebook page, the leash had been wrapped around the dog’s back legs cutting off the circulation. The dog has been taken to an animal hospital where he is being treated.
Does anyone recognize this dog? It was picked up by Suffield Animal Control today. It was tied to a tree off of a trail in the Stony Brook Park. This dog was left out to die overnight throughout the snowstorm. The leash had been wrapped around, and was cutting off the circulation to its back legs. The fur is severely matted and had icicles hanging from it at the time I picked him up.
This dog is currently being treated by a veterinarian.
We are looking to seek justice for this animal, and let it be known that animal cruelty doesn’t go unnoticed in our town.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Animal Control Officer Ryan Selig at 860.668.3870 or email RSelig@suffieldct.gov.
