Animal Care Services is asking for help in identifying a man who chained a pit bull puppy to a guardrail on a freeway access road Sunday.
A witness reported seeing a man believed to be in his late 30s or 40s driving a red 2004-2008 Dodge Ram extended-bed pickup with paper license plates pull over on the West Avenue access road at Interstate 10 East and use a heavy chain to tether the pup to a guardrail with a padlock. The chain was attached to 35 pounds of barbell weight plates.
The call from the witness came in shortly before 9 a.m. An animal care officer arrived at the scene around 9:05 a.m. The dog was found to be in good health.
