Kansas City issues citation in dog abuse case

KSAL StaffNovember 15, 2014

Kansas City officials say a dog has been abused so severely that its eyes had to be surgically removed.

The Kansas City Star reports that a municipal citation was issued to the person accused of abusing the Tibetan spaniel, but the dog owner’s name wasn’t immediately available. A city spokesman said Friday that the case also is being referred to the Jackson County prosecutor’s office.

KC Pet Project manages the city’s animal shelter and said Friday that the dog is doing well at a foster home “and is on his way to healing from his injuries.”

Kansas City Animal Control rescued the dog, named Roadrunner, last weekend. A witness reported that the dog’s owner had beaten, strangled and thrown the animal from the third-story of an apartment building.
