Yolo County Animal Services announced Saturday they need the public’s help identifying the person(s) involved in the torment and torture of another defenseless animal. A small tan and white dead male Chihuahua was discovered during a litter pickup by a maintenance crew late last week in the West Capital area of Sacramento, Calif. The dog had been tied up and tortured.
In May, a kitten was set on fire. The cat did not survive. A teenager has been charged with the heinous act.
Officer Michael Nevis of the Yolo County Animal Services stated the tiny dog’s front and back legs were bound, his muzzle tied shut, and his neck broken. A veterinarian’s examination of the dog revealed the dog was strangled and suffered a horrible death
Residents in the area where the dog was found were devastated when they viewed the graphic photographs. It is an area where many residents let their dogs play unleashed. The defenseless dog had been tied up so he couldn’t move, and his mouth had been tied shut so he couldn’t even cry out for help.
CBS Sacramento stated there are few clues to this terrible case of extreme animal cruelty. The dog had no collar or identification and no microchip.
If anyone has any information as to the owner of the dog or who may have been involved in what experts deem as one of the worst cases of animal cruelty, you are urged to call Yolo County Sheriff’s Office at (530)-668-5287 or the West Sacramento Police Department at (916)-617-4900.
