A dog is recovering from a severe injury after someone put a tight zip-tie around his neck. On Wednesday, Florida’s Hernando County Sheriff’s Office posted images of the dog, whose face was grotesquely swollen, recounting the information that is known:

The Hernando County Sheriff’s Office Animal Enforcement Unit is asking for the public’s assistance in locating the owner of the dog pictured in this post.
The dog, an adult male pit/cur mix, was located on 01-08-2022, roaming in the 16000 block of Blair Avenue in Brooksville. The dog had a large zip-tie fastened around its neck, which caused the dog’s head to swell considerably.

According to the authorities, it took enforcement officers several days to secure the dog, in order to remove the zip-tie from his neck. The dog was taken to Hernando County Animal Services and the swelling in his head has subsided.
