Suspect Identified In Animal Abuse

The Marion County Sheriff's Office says it has identified a suspect in the abandonment and death of a Pomeranian dog.

On August 2, surveillance video caught two men leaving a Pomeranian dog in a wire crate outside of the Marion County Animal Shelter. 

12 hours later, employees arrived at the shelter and found the dog. It died later that day.

A veterinarian said the dog had been abused and starved.

The Sheriff's Office says they identified a suspect thanks to citizen tips, but they're not releasing information about the suspect at this time.
