Ali, a three month old German Shepard mix, was thrown from a moving vehicle and his leg was fractured upon impact. Tuesday, around 10:30 a.m., a local community member witnessed a driver in a light colored van at the intersection of Dayton Boulevard and West Midvale Avenue throw Ali from the vehicle. "The vehicle did not slow but maintained a high rate of speed during the heinous act. Ali is lucky he did not sustain more severe injuries and that this kind individual stopped to help him and surrender him to the Humane Educational Society," officials said.
Humane Educational Society Animal Protection Officers need the public’s help to identify the individual who committed this act of cruelty.
Officers were not able to gather many details on the vehicle and are hoping someone is able to recognize Ali and identify his previous owners. Anyone with tips leading to the identification of Ali’s assailant is asked to call Humane Educational Society Animal Protection officers at 423-624-5302 x247.
The Humane Educational Society is also asking for donations to their Special Needs Fund
to provide the care Ali needs to recover.
