PETITION TARGET: Hamden Police Department
Left on a roadside to fend for herself in frigid winter weather, a starving elderly beagle suffering from a tumor watched her guardian drive away in Hamden, Conn.
A witness called the police after watching someone in a blue pick-up truck pull over and abandon the dog, who has a two-inch mass behind her shoulder. Emaciated and unkempt, the senior dog likely endured prolonged neglect before someone dumped her like trash.
Police have not yet identified the individual who committed this heartbreaking act and are hoping a member of the public comes forward with information.
Whoever denied this ailing dog the care and comfort she deserves, leaving her for dead on the side of the road, must answer for their actions.
Sign this petition urging the Hamden Police Department to use all available resources into identify and arrest the person responsible for this disturbing crime.
This is an ongoing investigation. Anyone with information is urged to call the Hamden Animal Control Department at (203) 230-4080.
