Dog Found With Duct Tape Around Muzzle And Throat Slit

An investigation is underway after a dog was found on the side of the road with her mouth duct taped shut and her throat slit.

The Butler County Sheriff's Office urged the public for assistance after the dog was found by a passerby in Madison Township, Ohio.

Miraculously, the dog was still alive. She was rushed to a local veterinarian, where a chip device revealed she was registered to Heart Rescue in Cincinnati.

According to reports, Heart Rescue said it adopted out the dog, named Dani, in 2011 and that information is being investigated.

"This is appalling, words cannot describe the disgust I’m feeling right now, we will work diligently to find who did this and seek justice," Sheriff Richard Jones said on Twitter.

Dani is on her way to recovery.
