A plea for help using social media was posted July 26 concerning several pit bull type dogs being dumped in Missouri. Authorities believe the dogs are being used as bait dogs, then discarded after being killed.
This is a male brown/white pit bull type dog who was found dead today by MoDOT (Missouri Department of Transportation) workers on Highway 60, close to State Trooper Headquarter E.
In the past two weeks, MoDOT has found 5 Pit Bulls and 1 American Bulldog in ditches all with severe injuries (broken bones, large gashes on the body). The injuries don’t fit in with ones that a dog would sustain from being hit by a car, but rather intentional cruelty.
3 dogs were found at Route AA just outside of Miner, MO
2 on Highway 61 heading towards Grant City, MO
1 on Highway 60 close to State Troopers Headquarter E in Sikeston, MO
Someone out there knows this dog. Maybe he is one that had came up missing from a loving family, a “Free to Good Home” dog or purposely bred by these scumbags but regardless. Someone knows him.
MoDOT is asking that if anyone does know this dog please contact them. It will remain completely anonymous if desired. They have talked to authorities and unless they can positively ID the owners of these dogs, nothing can be done.
Which means that the people/person doing this will continue to get away with it and dogs will continue to die. If you have any information PLEASE come forward. You can email firstname.lastname@example.org or message here and it will be relayed to the proper authorities.
I am sorry if this photo offends anyone. I’ve mosaiced out some of it, but the original can be seen by clicking here. MoDOT is helping out greatly with this and all the law enforcement individuals in the area are just as eager to help find who is doing this.
