Dog recovering after being dragged by a truck
Authorities on Thursday were seeking information about a driver who dragged a dog through a Riverside neighborhood while the animal was tied to the back of a pickup.
The white dog suffered injuries on all four paws in the incident, which occurred Wednesday about 7 p.m., the Riverside County Department of Animal Services said.
“The paws were pretty bloody, and there were a lot of sores,” said Krista Stewart, an animal service officer.
A witness called 911 and alerted authorities that the animal was being dragged near Claycroft and Peacock lanes in the city’s La Sierra area, agency spokesman Jose Arballo said.
It was not clear how far the dog had been dragged. The driver stopped and untied the dog before leaving.
The driver was in a red pickup truck. The dog, about 10 months old, was treated and wrapped with bandages. The dog was recovering from the injuries, officials said… story taken from… The Los Angeles Times.. read full story… http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/lanow/2011/11/dog-dragged-behind-pickup.html
