A dog in Gallatin County, Montana, suffered severe injuries after being tied to the bumper of a car and dragged an estimated half mile. On July 15, Gallatin County officials issued a news release about the animal cruelty incident. The release provides details about the cruel incident:
On July 6th, Gallatin County Sheriff’s deputies investigated a call regarding animal cruelty. The caller reported that a dog had been tied to a bumper and was dragged over half a mile down Jackrabbit Lane before the collar came apart and the dog was set loose. Deputies searched for the dog and found Marley in the ditch. As the deputies approached, Marley lifted its head and showed a strong will to live. Marley was then taken to receive emergency vet care.
Though Marley suffered horrible injuries, he is expected to recover. You can make a donation towards Marley’s care at this fundraiser.
The Gallatin County Sheriff’s Office is conducting a full investigation.
