Dog thrown from vehicle in Tennessee, search underway for person responsible
CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (WTVC) The Hamilton County chapter of the Humane Educational Society (HES) is asking for the public's help in giving a dog a second chance.
HES says Ali, a three-month-old German Shepard mix, was thrown from a moving vehicle and his leg was fractured upon impact.
This happened on Tuesday at about 10:30 a.m. HES says someone saw a driver in a light-colored van at the intersection of Dayton Boulevard and West Midvale Avenue throw Ali from the vehicle.
HES says the witness says the vehicle didn't even slow down when throwing Ali out.
The person who saw it happen stopped to help him, and took him to HES.
HES Society Animal Protection Officers need the public’s help to identify the person who committed this act of animal cruelty.
Officers were not able to gather many details on the vehicle and are hoping someone is able to recognize Ali and identify his previous owners.
Anyone with tips leading to the identification of Ali’s assailant is asked to call Humane Educational Society Animal Protection officers at 423-624-5302, extension 247.
The Humane Educational Society is also asking for donations to its Special Needs Fund to provide the care Ali needs to recover. Go here to learn more.
As far as adoption, HES did not say in their release when or whether that option would be made available any time soon.
