The Spartanburg County Animal Control is actively searching for the person or people responsible for tying a dog to train tracks in Enoree, South Carolina.
Dan Winkleman heard the dog’s loud, frantic barks as he was walking around his property, according to Channel7News.
When Winkleman investigated the source of the dog barks, it led him to the train tracks and a dog tied to the middle of the tracks.
As Winkleman approached the dog, he noticed that the dog was securely tied to the tracks. Someone intentionally left the poor animal there to die.
Winkleman and his wife retrieved the dog but unfortunately could not keep him because they already had four.
"That was horrible what they did." Spartanburg County Animal Control is working to find the person responsible after a couple said they found a dog tied to train tracks behind their home over the weekend.https://t.co/VH16TXWj86— FOX 46 Charlotte (@FOX46News) October 5, 2021
