Long Island Scumbag Throws Puppy Out Of Moving Car
There currently is a real sack of shit on the loose who needs to be brought to justice.
Somebody on Long Island threw a 3-month-old puppy out of a moving car over the weekend and then sped off, leaving the little guy to die.
Thankfully, the Pit Bull puppy lived, but is in pretty rough shape.
The Suffolk County SPCA says the puppy -- who has since been named "Joey" -- was found on the Sagtikos Parkway near the Pilgrim Psychiatric Center in Brentwood on Saturday afternoon after a witness saw a bag thrown from a moving car.
When the witness stopped to see what it was, Joey was inside the black plastic bag, whimpering.
Joey currently is getting treated for a broken neck. Additionally, he had bite wounds on his neck, which authorities say indicates that he may have been used as a "bait dog" for training other dogs to fight.
Joey weighs about 10 pounds, which is about five pounds less than what a healthy 3-month-old Pit Bull should weigh.
The SPCA is offering a $2,000 reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction of the creep who tossed Joey from the car. Anyone with information is asked to call 631-382-7722.
