A South Carolina Sheriff rescued a dog with duct tape wrapped around her head and mouth after she was found wandering near a residential road.
Sheriff’s Captain Chad McInville knew that something was wrong the moment he spotted the her. “I finally got the dog to come to me,” he told The Washington Post, “and I was able to get the duct tape off of her head and her mouth.”
McInvile noted that the tape was wrapped around her mouth so many times that “she would have died because she couldn’t eat.”
The dog was immediately transported to Darlington County Humane Society. Susan Blakeney, a volunteer with the shelter, said that the dog, who is now named Aurora, was evaluated by a veterinarian Tuesday morning and found to be “a little on the thin side” but otherwise was not severely affected by the duct tape.
In a Facebook update, the Darlington County Humane Society wrote that Aurora, who is thought to be a 3 or 4-year-old pure breed Great Dane, has lacerations on one paw, hookworms, whipworms and heartworms.
Aurora is expected to make a full recovery after being duct taped and abandoned.
