Dog found with rock climbing gear pierced through its neck; police offer $10K for information on culprit
The rescued dog, who has since been named Woodrow, was found in July after getting spotted by a man under his trailer.
The Humane Society of the United States is reportedly offering a staggering reward of almost ten grand in exchange for information leading to the arrest of the person responsible for jabbing a carabiner, which is ideally a device used for rock climbing, through the neck of a Florida Labrador retriever. Fox News reports that The Humane Society announced the news on Friday that it was offering $5,000, while a local animal refuge center, along with a few others, have also promised to pay a reward to the person who comes up with reliable information. The combined total of the two places has driven up the reward amount to approximately $10,000 - $9,750, to be exact.
The rescued dog, who has since been named Woodrow, was found in July after getting spotted by a man under his trailer. When animal control officials arrived, “they noticed that a metal oval object with a chain hanging from it was embedded in the dog’s skin,” reads the statement.
However, the little fellow has since then recovered from his injuries and “will be placed for adoption in a new loving home” after he is released from the Alaqua Animal Refuge, the Humane Society said. “These injuries did not happen by accident,” Walton County Sheriff Michael Adkinson said in a statement.
A similar incident had been reported from Detroit earlier in February where animal rescue workers found a 3-year-old German Shepherd-Rottweiler mix injured with his neck infected from a carabiner hook sinking into the flesh weighed by a 15-pound tow chain.
