Animal Abuse Update 30 Jul 12

Authorities now believe that a dog originally thought to have been the victim of animal abuse in Savage last week was likely struck by a car instead. The pit bull was found injured and bleeding in the driveway of a home last Wednesday. The dog’s owners believed that it had been targeted for abuse because of it’s breed, but a closer examination revealed that the dog was likely injured by a moving vehicle. Writing that was found on the dog’s back remains unexplained, however.
