Dog spotted on California freeway with his mouth taped

In the Long Beach area of California on Tuesday afternoon, several motorists spotted a dog in an open pickup truck on the 405 N. Freeway. The pup’s muzzle was taped closed and there appeared to be an injury to the dog’s leg.

After an outpouring of concern for the dog’s safety and welfare, an Animal Control officer was dispatched to the owner’s home. The dog was deemed fine and no further action was taken. Of more concern, however was a photo of the dog’s bloody foot as the result of an apparently fresh injury.

Animal advocates find the lack of concern for the dog unacceptable.

“Thank you to all the people who called to report the incident to Long Beach authorities, so at least the dog was checked out,” the rescue organization Animal Hope and Wellness Foundation posted on social media. “We are hoping further pressure may yield results.”

If you see something, say something. Be the voice for those who cannot speak.
