The Alabama chapter of the Humane Society of the United States has issued a $2,500 reward for information leading to the arrest of a person or persons who tortured and mutilated a dog in St. Clair County.
The total reward is $2,800 in the case of Major, a Rottweiler mix, and donations are mounting to help defray the costs of caring for the dog.About $1,000 has been accepted by Main Street Animal Clinic in Trussville to finish paying the initial bill for treating the abused animal. Any remaining funds, as well as any other contributions, will be used for future treatment once Major recovers from his recent sRandy Wall, an investigator with the St. Clair County Sheriff's Deptartment, said despite "lots of calls," there are no suspects. He said the case is still under investigation.
Major disappeared in late August but managed to drag himself back to his neighborhood about a week later. He was taken to the Trussville clinic, where the veterinary team found he had been shot in the right leg, stabbed in the left, and his hip had been shattered so badly a pin could not be inserted to hold the joint together.
But those were not his worst injuries. Major's penis was almost cut off; the vet had to remove the penis and create an artificial opening for urination.
Gary Long, who now is caring for Major in his garage, said the dog is slowly improving. He said he plans to build a kennel in his backyard so the animal will be safer.
Major, 4, is the "neighborhood" dog, according to Long. The dog wandered into the subdivision where the Longs live about three years ago. Until he was injured, he spent his time between the Longs' house and two other houses.
"This is a nice neighborhood," Long said. "I don't know how anybody could do something like this."
