A Michigan woman is mourning the loss of her dog and puppy, who she believes were the victims of an act of heartless cruelty. As reported by WWJ News Radio, Angelica Stewart’s pups, Malachi and Apollo, disappeared after her toddler opened a door and they escaped.
Stewart learned the grim news of her dogs’ fate after receiving word from Taylor Animal Shelter had two dead dogs, collected from the freeway, in their possession. Stewart was told that numerous people reported seeing a man in a black truck dropping the dog and puppy off on Interstate 94.
Karl Ziomek, a shelter spokesperson, stated:
“We have very little on this, what we have this is a driver saw this black vehicle and a person with some dogs running loose onto the freeway. Whether that person let them loose, whether they got loose, who knows. Our PD dispatched an animal control officer out there, by the time the animal control officer got there there was no person, and two dead dogs.”
Stewart broke the news of the dogs’ deaths on her Facebook page, writing:
Update*** dogs found, but unfortunately they were both picked up by a guy in a black truck, who then dropped them off on 94 freeway by telegraph where they were hit and died. If anyone has any information on this guy in a black truck please please contact me
Anyone who may have witnessed the incident is asked to call the Taylor Police Department at 734-374-1420.
