Dogs Thrown From SUV on I-81 Are Healing
The Broome County Humane Society reports that both the dogs are eating well and gaining weight after being thrown out of a moving dark blue Dodge Durango on I-81.
Can you believe the criminals who did this are still on the lose?

The Broome County Humane Society is caring for two Beagle dogs that were reportedly thrown from a vehicle on Interstate 81 southbound. NYS Police say a tractor-trailer driver from Syracuse told troopers that he saw the dogs thrown from a dark-colored SUV that he was behind at around 9:30 a.m. Wednesday. The driver stopped on the left side of the road to rescue the dogs and contact authorities. He then used his sweatshirt comfort the severely injured dog until NYS Police arrived.
Trooper had numerous injuries including two fractured legs, broken ribs, a lung contusion and was transferred to Colonial Animal Hospital in Ithaca. After X-rays and seeing an orthopedic specialist he had surgery in an attempt to keep both legs, but due to the extent of his injuries, only one could be saved.
Thankfully, Trooper is slowly recovering. There were some concerns relating to his blood test results-which could have turned out to be normal after his type of trauma and surgery.
PETA has issued awards to the NYS Troopers and Adam the truck driver who was instrumental in rescuing the dogs. There is also a $16,500 reward (possibly more as PETA has donated another $500) being offered in the conviction of the suspect(s) who threw two dogs out of the moving vehicle on Wednesday, December 12, 2018, on I-81 south in Marathon, NY.
