Man Seen Striking Dog Later Found to Have Significant Wounds on All Four Legs
The Humane Rescue Alliance (HRA) is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to the identification, arrest, and conviction of those involved in a tragic case of alleged animal cruelty. On Friday, January 4, HRA received a call about a dog who had been abandoned at Skip’s Liquor Store and Laundromat in NE: the dog had significant injuries to all four legs. Surveillance video (seen below) reviewed by HRA experts shows a man hitting the dog, possibly with an object, and then dragging her away from his vehicle before driving off.
“The depth and severity of this dog’s exposed wounds strongly suggests that she endured extraordinary pain,” said Chris Schindler, Vice President of Field Services at HRA. “HRA is determined to bring her abuser to justice and we hope this reward will motivate any witnesses or others with information about this crime to come forward immediately.”
The vehicle in the video appears to be a Red Cadillac CTS, model year possibly between 2003 – 2007. We are seeking information regarding the identity of the person of interest seen in the video for questioning regarding the incident in addition to any information regarding the source of the dog’s injuries or identifying the address where this dog may have resided. If you have information, please call 202-723-5730, option 1.
