The Lee County Sheriff’s Office is currently seeking information about a dog found roaming through backyards with his mouth sealed with red electrical tape. On Tuesday, the Lee County Domestic Animal Services rescued the Florida Cur after a concerned citizen notified authorities.

According to the Lee County Sheriff’s Office social media page, the dog had been panting and drooling and on the verge of suffocating. He was also dehydrated, appeared malnourished and had been bleeding from wounds on his left leg and chest.

“The Lee County Sheriff’s Office is seeking community assistance in an attempt to identify the dog’s owner. The dog has been seen by a veterinarian and is resting comfortably at Lee County Domestic Animal Services.”

Any information should be reported to the Lee County Sheriff’s Office at 239.477.1000 or submit information anonymously to Southwest Florida Crime Stoppers at 1.800 780.TIPS. A reward up to $3,000 has been offered.

Tips may also be made online at or by submitting a tip on the P3Tips mobile app.

Be the voice for those who cannot speak. If you don’t want your dog, turn him into a shelter. This boy deserves justice.
