ANIMAL CRUELTY

Date: Thursday, February 01, 2018 4:00 pm
Location: 4900 block of Concorde
Offense: Animal Cruelty
Case Number: 1802010118

On Thursday afternoon, a call for service was made to our Animal Care Services office regarding a dog that was seen hanging from a fence. Animal Control Officers arrived at the location and found a dog that was dead. The initial investigation indicated that the dog had attempted to jump over a fence but its leash became entangled in the fence, and that led to its death. Contact was made with the homeowner, who claimed the dog. A concurrent investigation was initiated by both ACS and the Criminal Investigation Division.

A necropsy will be conducted by our veterinarian this afternoon.
