Police in Vicksburg, Mississippi, are investigating a suspected case of animal cruelty following the discovery of a deceased dog inside of a cage that was floating in flood water on Ford Road, in the Kings Community earlier this week.
The dog, believed to be a male pit bull, was wearing a black collar with metal studs, but had no other identification. Officials have not been able to determine the cause of death. Most of the dog’s fur was missing by the time the body was found – a small amount was found, but it may have been colored brown by dirty water.
Anyone with information about the case is asked to call the Vicksburg Police Department at 601-636-2511 or Vicksburg Animal Shelter at 601-636-6981.
