Dog survives slashed throat, police investigate

User Rating: / 24

On Tuesday Animal Control officer Anne Dewolfe found a dog with her throat slashed, but still alive, and immediately rushed her to the Bright Star Veterinary Clinic.

Bright Star Veterinarian Leah Larsen first examined the female dog, who would later be named Faith.

“It was a seven to 10-day wound that missed her vital organs by millimeters,” said Larsen. “The throat wound was caused by a sharp object that made a clean cut.”

The slash was speculated to be caused by a knife, much like what a hunter would do if he found a deer still alive after an inital shot. Brightstar Veterinary Clinic notified the police department that this was severe animal abuse.

Both the Sulphur Springs Police Department and Bright Star Veterinary Clinic believe the dog was left for dead after the brutal attack.

“Right now, we are investigating the case and will hopefully make an arrest by next week,” said Sulphur Springs Police Chief Jay Sanders. “I do not believe we have seen a case like this before.”

SSPD and Bright Star Veterinary Clinic have been receiving donations all week to cover Faith’s medical expenses.

Larsen said she has been scheduled to operate on Faith’s neck on Monday morning so they can monitor her all week. Once Faith is well, she will be up for adoption.

To donate and help Faith or other dogs that are abused or neglected, contact Bright Star Veterinary Clinic at 903-885-0103.

If anyone has any information on who might have abused Faith, contact Sulphur Springs Police Departtment at 903-885-7602.
