Police investigate man after Pike Co. dog found duct-taped

It's a sad day indeed when there are so many pets found duct taped around this country every day that the incident reports are now "tagged" on blogs to be displayed in a search engine query, one after the other. (H/T Ohmidog)

UPDATE: Police have charged Russell Seese of Greentown with two counts of animal cruelty on Tuesday in connection with this case, according to WNEP-TV. No other details were available.

A picture was sent to us of the pitbull that had its mouth taped shut and its legs bound together with duct tape.

In Philadelphia in 2009 we had the little duct-taped tortoise shell kitten. (Who survived thankfully.) In 2011 a duct-taped puppy found in Philadelphia was not so lucky.

Today we add a new entry to the running list. This one from northeastern Pennsylvania, where a young female dog was found with her legs and muzzle duct-taped in an outbuilding on a property.

Police are questioning a man in Greentown, Pike County but are continuing to look for information in the case, according to the News Eagle. The dog is under a veterinarian's care, the paper reported.
