Recently the Internet was touched by a South Carolina dog named Caitlyn, whose muzzle was severely injured because it was bound so tightly. Now a puppy in Louisiana was found in a similar predicament. Caitlyn is expected to make a full recovery from her surgery and is looking to be adopted.
Meanwhile, a puppy named Otis was taken to an animal shelter in Laplace, Louisiana, Friday with his mouth and neck taped shut along with at least two broken toes. He, too, is expected to make a full recovery and is in the care of a loving foster mom. Veterinarian Ashley Geoghegan suspects he was either being inhumanely punished or was being “broken” to become dog-fighting bait.
There’s a $700 reward for information leading to the arrest of a suspect and St. John the Baptist Sheriff’s Office tells CNN affiliate WDSU that it’s launching a criminal investigation into the animal cruelty case.
