The Nova Scotia SPCA is investigating an animal cruelty case involving a dog caught up barbed wire and left in a field.

Officers responded to a late night emergency call that a dog had been found tied up in a field. Upon arrival it was discovered that the dog was unable to move as it was also stuck in barbed wire.

The dog was immediately taken to the metro emergency hospital to be sedated and have the barbed wire removed.

She is currently under care at the SPCA and the organization is searching for the dog’s owner. They’re asking anyone with information to call 1-888-703-7722 and ask to have Cst. Landsburg paged.
