Dog Left for Dead on I-84, Police Need Help Finding Suspect
A neglected dog was discovered tied to a tree in the Hudson Valley and police need your help finding the owners.
An investigation was launched after the abandoned animal was found just off of I-84 in East Fishkill. Department of Transportation workers were preparing to mow a section of the interstate when they heard a dog in distress. After searching the woods, DOT employees found a pup tied to a tree. The dog appeared to suffer from neglect.
With help from the Dutchess County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, the dog was rescued and is now being cared for. Police are trying to find out who abandoned the animal and are asking for the public's help. Photos of the dog, along with the section of I-84 where it was abandoned were released in hopes that someone will step forward with more information.
