Cops in Spencer, Massachusetts, are looking for 48-year-old Leonardo Pagan Marrero for abandoning his sick dog in the yard of his empty home in minus temperatures. Cops had previously received a complaint from Leonardo’s neighbors about his dying Siberian Husky who was tied to a pole in the yard without food or water.
When the cops arrived at the property, the Husky was found entangled in cable wires and had no strength left in him. It is unclear how long Leonardo has been away from home, but the dog was clearly emaciated from months of malnourishment. He is now under the care of “Siberian Husky Rescue League”.
The Husky’s medical tests have revealed that the dog has been suffering from Lyme disease, Anaplasma and hookworms. The investigators believe that Leonardo had no intention to look after his dog. He shamelessly discarded the sick dog and hoped that the cold would accelerate his death. Let’s spread the word and help the cops track the soulless owner!
Update: After over 42 days of investigations, Leonardo has finally been caught! He was arrested and charged with animal cruelty. He is currently out on a $2,000 cash bail, and will face his court hearing at a later date. Let’s spread the word and demand the strictest punishment for this dog abuser!
