A dog, abandoned in a flimsy crate left outside of a Kentucky animal shelter, died after breaking free from his cage and getting struck by a car. His name was Cane, and his owner left a note with him for shelter workers to find when the facility opened.
On Wednesday, the Henry Trimble Animal Shelter expressed anger to the person who abandoned Cane after hours, writing:
To the person that thought it was a good idea to leave a 100 pound dog in a flimsy crate with dogs barking all around him, it was a bad idea and it cost Cane his life.
I have your dog, but if I post the pictures, they will be banned due to their graphic nature. Cane broke out of the crate and ran into the road. My guess is that a truck from the landfill hit him and dragged him several feet. You can see where he bled out in the road before someone dragged him off to the side.
The note left with with the three-year-old dog reads in part:
Please find me a good home. My owners could no longer keep me. I’ve had my shots and I’m neutered. I’m also kennel trained.
Because Cane’s owner decided to leave him alone after hours, his life is over. The shelter has stated that surveillance cameras are on the property, writing:
Animal control will identify you on the video cameras. What happens to you for your carelessness is irrelevant to me. Cane will still be dead.
