Sheriff's Office Opens Investigation Into Dog Abuse CasePosted: Updated:
The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office has opened an investigation into an animal abuse case reported last week.
As 7 News reported last week, Emily Brady brought a dog to the Jefferson County SPCA after she said she watched two men throw a dog out of a moving pickup truck.
The sheriff's office said Monday that it's seeking the public's help with the case.
Officials said on February 28 at approximately 10:30 a.m., a witness reported seeing a pickup truck on Salmon Run Mall Road slow down and eject a dog from the rear driver’s side door.
The witness reported that she took the dog to two veterinary clinics and then home. The following day she delivered the dog to the SPCA.
The truck is described as a dark blue Chevy Silverado bearing Tennessee license plates and having an OIR (Operation Inherent Resolve) decal in the lower-left rear window.
The Sheriff’s Office is asking anyone with information regarding this vehicle or this case to call 315-786-2601, reference case #18S003482.
The SPCA said the dog, named Hunny, is expected to be adopted soon and will leave the shelter after she's spayed.
