|Two year old named “Chessie” who survived train incident –|
ABC News is reporting that three dogs were seen being tied to train tracks in Cleveland. Two of the dogs apparently were killed but one survived. A railroad employee has been quoted as having seen someone taking pictures or video as train went by.
“It’s got everyone upset over here that someone would do that. It’s awful that someone did that to torture animals, and might be filming it,” Lt. Mark Ketterer, who is leading the investigation for the Cleveland Police Department, told the Plain Dealer newspaper. The surviving dog, which is believed to be a mixed-breed Manchester terrier and is much smaller than the others, managed to avoid the train by crouching, said Leslie DeSouza, kennel manager at the Cuyahoga Animal Shelter, which is caring for the dog.
PETA is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the person who did this unthinkable act.
