State Police have told Fox 40 that they believe the vehicle that threw two dogs out of the window on Interstate 81 is a dark colored, older model Dodge Durango with rust on the rear side right under the hatch.
State Police said the dogs were seen being thrown out of the rear passenger window, which may suggest that more than one person was involved in committing the crime.
Anyone with information regarding the person or persons responsible for throwing the two dogs out of a moving vehicle is asked to call State Police at (607) 547-2233.
‘Trooper,’ one of the dogs thrown out of a vehicle Wednesday morning on I-81, is heading to surgery where veterinarians will attempt to save both his legs, according to an update on The Broome County Humane Society Facebook page.
The post reads:
“We have a “Trooper” update! He is going into surgery very soon! They will be attempting to save both of his legs. He is in GREAT HANDS and we are grateful for the continued support we are getting to help cover his medical expenses. The costs are going to continue to rise and all donations are greatly appreciated.
Trooper has a long road ahead of him and after surgery will require extensive care for his recovery. Once we have all of specifics about his recovery needs we will be happy to have discussions with serious foster families when that information becomes available! Thank you again for your ongoing support!”
