The Suffolk County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) has offered a $2,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person(s) responsible for throwing a pit bull mix out of a pickup truck near the U.S. Post Office of Mastic Beach, N.Y. on Wednesday, reports

A witness observed a late model, dark colored four-door pick up throwing the black and white dog out of the driver's side passenger window. When the dog hit the ground, he tried to run after the vehicle.

As the witness pulled over to check on the welfare of the dog, the terrified pooch jumped into his rescuer's car.

Suffolk County SPCA Chief Roy Gross stated the dog is three to four years of age, was wearing a black collar, and is house trained. The dog also had a fresh two inch puncture wound over his right eye, which was not indicative of being thrown out of a car.

Chief Gross stated:

“This is a blatant act of animal cruelty, and we will do everything we can to see that those responsible are apprehended."

In addition, the traumatized dog also has scars on his face possibly related to having been a bait dog for training fighting dogs.

If you have any information, you are asked to call the Suffolk County SPCA at (631)-382-7722.
