Dog Carcass Pulled From River - WNEP
A German shepherd dog that was pulled from the Susquehanna River in Lycoming County Thursday had a concrete block tied around its neck. Now the search is on to find the animal's owner.
The white, female German shepherd was likely thrown from the bridge and left for dead if it was not dead already, according to investigators.
"There was some blood on the dog. Possibly it had been shot prior to being thrown over the bridge," said Larry Woltz, a humane officer with the Lycoming County SPCA.
Humane officers said whoever is responsible for the dog's death could likely face animal cruelty charges.
Anyone with information that could help find the dog's owner is asked to contact the Lycoming County SPCA at 570-322-4646.
