GEORGETOWN, Ky. (LEX 18) — Scott County Animal Care & Control wants information on who stuffed a dog into a bag then threw it into a shallow creek.

AC Officer Kevin Sanfield says he believes the hound-mix K9 may have been shot before it was put in a dog food bag then tossed 50 feet over a bridge into Little Eagle Creek this week.

All things considered, Sanfield said the dog appears healthy and is believed to be about a year old.

If you have any information contact Scott County Animal Care & Control at (502) 863-7897.

Sanfield said the shelter accepts animals free of charge if you’re a Scott County resident.

"There's no reason for somebody to do this," said Sanfield.
