National

BUTLER COUNTY, OH (WCMH) – A dog found with duct tape around its muzzle and its throat cut is on the mend, and Ohio deputies are searching for the person who did it.

Butler County Sheriff Richard K. Jones said in a press release that the dog was discovered last Saturday by a person walking on the side of the road in the 5000 block of Trenton Franklin Road in Madison Township.

The dog was taken to a local veterinarian, where a chip was located on the animal.

The chip came back registered to Heart Rescue in Cincinnati. Heart Rescue said it adopted out the dog in 2011 and that information is being investigated.

“This is appalling,” Butler said in the release. “Words cannot describe the disgust I’m feeling right now. We will work diligently to find who did this and seek justice.”

The Butler County Sheriff’s Dog Warden is investigating the animal cruelty case and is asking for the public’s help in identifying the dog and finding its owner. Anyone with information can contact the sheriff’s office at 513-785-1000.
