Dogs Thrown From SUV Have Been Adopted Together
The Broome County Humaine Society have found a family for Trooper and Adam.
NYS Police Troop C at Homer is seeking help in locating the people responsible for throwing the dogs out of a moving vehicle in Cortland County...The truck driver who saved the dogs told troopers he observed a vehicle which he believes to be an older Dodge Durango slow down, roll down their rear passenger window and throw the dogs out of the window. He described the vehicle as very dirty and had rust along the hatch near the bumper area. He told troopers he immediately stopped to get the dogs to safety...The vehicle was traveling south on I-81 between the Marathon and Whitney Point exit at approximately 9:30 a.m. Wednesday, December 12th, anyone with information is asked to call New York SP Homer at (607)749-1614. A $17,000.00 reward is being offered for information that leads to an arrest and conviction.
Trooper had numerous injuries including two fractured legs, broken ribs, a lung contusion and was held at 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, Adam just had a bad case of road rash and is doing well.
We now have a happy ending to a very tragic story, but, remember the person or people who did this are still at large.
