Dog Left for Dead in Diaper Box
Constable Aaron Muzzerall estimates the dog had been left for at least two days and was found alive, but just barely.
He says the incident was brought to the attention of police after the dog was discovered Sunday afternoon by a person out walking their dog near the Copper River.
Muzzerall says the dog was then transported to Kitimat where it was seen by a veterinarian and found to be severely dehydrated and suffering from an eye infection along with other health complications.
In the end, he says the decision was made to have the dog euthanized.
“An animal should never be treated this badly and have to suffer like this. Owning a pet comes with it a responsibility to take care of it,” says Muzzerall.
As a result of this incident, the Terrace RCMP are now investigating this crime and ask anyone with information to call them at 250-638-7400 or anonymously through Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
