Dog owner sought in severe neglect case
Posted May 23, 2012
Henderson, N.C. — A $2,500 reward is being offered in the neglect and abandonment of a female pit bull that was found tied to a pole with a telephone cord in Vance County, the Humane Society of the United States said Wednesday.
The group is offering the reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of whoever is responsible.
Vance County Animal Services Director Alex Hargrove said the dog was found Tuesday in terrible condition. The animal was emaciated, dehydrated and covered with mange and sores.
The mange is so severe that authorities cannot tell the color of the dog's fur, Hargrove said.
Anyone with information is asked to call investigators at 252-492-3136.
