dog on leash
8hrs later, the dog was still whining loudly, so i went out to see if it was ok and it had managed to squeeze through the wrought iron fence and was now trapped on the sidewalk. it was then i called animal control to report this emergency situation. no one was around and the dog has been abandoned for at least 12 hrs tied to the tree. i grabbed some water to bring it over, but spooked the dog and she got out of her collar. this is an agressive and frightened dog, so i scampered back home to await the animal control.
they luckily showed up within a few minutes and corraled the dog and took it away.
a couple hours later, a woman showed up at the apartment screaming the dog's name out and running around. part of me wanted to watch her squirm and get freaked out and sad, but inside, I knew that wasn't right, so i walked over and informed her that animal control had come by to take the dog a few hrs ago. she was distraught, and when i told her the dog was barking and whining all night, she apologized with some bullshit answer about it being her daughter's dog and she didn't think it would be an issue leaving it for the night.
who the fuck leaves a dog chained to a tree in 80 degree weather for 15 hrs with no water or food.
