NEW PHILADELPHIA, Ohio — Heartbreaking video captures the moment a masked man abandoned two animals Wednesday night outside the Tuscarawas County Humane Society.
Surveillance video shows the unidentified man taking a golden retriever out of his vehicle and tying it to a nearby pole. He then is seen ditching a caged pig just a few steps away.
The man then gets back in a vehicle and drives away.
“The animals were left alone for approximately four hours when the sheriff department was dispatched,” according to the video, which was posted on Facebook.
The video reached more than 1,500 shares in just two hours.
Both animals are reportedly being evaluated by a veterinarian.
