PrideInThisTeam Posted July 17, 2013 Share Posted July 17, 2013 The two pit bulls who were dragged behind a pick up truck in Nanaimo last Friday are back with their owners today. Police said the owners are related to the man who allegedly dragged the dogs, a puppy and an adult, behind his truck. Const. Gary O’Brien with the Nanaimo RCMP said the dogs were dragged 600 to 700 feet and it appeared their leashes had been tied to the bumper. The pit bull puppy, who is between six and eight months old, was not able to keep up, and O’Brien said when the dog was found it was so badly injured, people thought it was dead. However, both dogs are doing better and O’Brien said it looks like they are going to make a full recovery. A 27-year-old Nanaimo man has now been arrested. He was later released on a promise to appear and charges of causing unnecessary suffering to an animal under the Criminal Code of Canada have been recommended, but he has not been charged at this time. One of his release conditions is to have no contact with animals. His first court appearance is set for September 3 in Nanaimo Provincial court . Did a search and didn't see it posted, thought I'd share this one... Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
