“WTF…only a cold-hearted non-feeling, inhumane bastard, could do something like this. The dog was alive when it was tied in a bag…& it was found alive…but euthanized due to its poor condition. Whoever owned this dog, knew it would suffer & slowly die; how fxxxxxg cruel is that? Who could do a thing like that?? Somebody must have seen this dog alive & in someone’s back yard at some point, it clearly wasn’t looked after properly while it was alive; it’s coat was very matted which would have been very noticeable! Who know’s what terrible abuse this poor dog suffered whilst alive, before being dumped & left to suffocate to death!! Did this person live near the school? Did they dump the poor dog from a car or on foot?”
“This dog was 10 years old…please think about it…have you noticed the neighbours dog has disappeared? Cocker spaniel’s are easily identified by their long ears, & shaggy coats, often curly hair which covers their whole body. However this owner totally neglected to brush the dogs coat. They are very placid dogs who love attention & love to give it, especially wet kisses…I have never met a Cocker Spaniel that hasn’t wanted lots of cuddles; they are an adorable breed, anyone who has one would agree with me!”
“Look around you, please anyone with any information, even if you think it is not linked; a neighbour may have said their dog died of natural causes or it was taken to vets due to illness…come on guy’s, unless this dog was locked in a basement for 10 years, never to be seen…somebody know’s who it belonged to. Please contact the numbers below. This person needs to be found & convicted; before they go buy another dog, which they will soon neglect!!”
The County of San Diego Department of Animal Services is looking for any witnesses or information regarding a severely neglected dog that was found in a large trash bin Saturday, Jan. 5 at Mount Miguel High School in Spring Valley.
When found, the dog’s coat was so severely matted that it is likely the dog could not walk. The animal’s condition was so severe; he had to be euthanized at the Department’s animal care center in Bonita that same day. No medical intervention would have reversed the condition of the dog.
“Whoever did this horrific act needs to be found and held accountable,” said Animal Services Director Dawn Danielson.
If you saw anyone near the school dumpsters on Friday, Jan. 4 or Saturday, Jan. 5 dumping a large black plastic bag or have any information about this case, contact Deputy Director Dan DeSousa at (619)767-2624 or Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477.
A $1,000 reward is being offered by San Diego Animal Advocates for any information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person responsible for this dog’s suffering. If a suspect is identified, he or she could face felony animal abuse charges, punishable by imprisonment in state prison and a $20,000 fine.
