Former County Jail Employee Tapes Puppy’s Legs & Snout Shut, Dumps Him In Woods

 The little pooch suffered "serious physical injury caused by having his muzzle taped shut for an extended period of time."

A little puppy from McCracken County, Kentucky barely made it to his first birthday. The 6- to 9-month-old Great Dane/black Labrador retriever mix was found on their lonesome wandering within the woods. A horrible person taped his snout shut and wound tape tightly around his back legs. Though he was ready to get the tape free from his legs, he suffered from the tape around his snout.

He was unable to eat, drink, or maybe bark for somebody to assist him. Luckily, an honest Samaritan stumbled upon him and got him help. An investigation into the case revealed a really disturbing suspect. A former employee of the McCracken County Jail was charged with animal cruelty after admitting taping the dog’s legs and snout shut. Police say 32-year-old Jayce Bryant of Kevil said the puppy bit him so he punished him. Bryant was fired from his job and charged with a category D felony of torturing a dog with serious physical injury.

According to Dr. Russell Jones, the puppy “suffered the utmost serious physical injury caused by having his muzzle taped shut for an extended period of your time .”

At a recent Clear the Shelters event, the McCracken County Humane Society hoped that the pooch, whom they named Hero, would find a forever home. Hero endured pain, suffering, and treatment and deserved to seek out happiness during a loving home. an area news director, Perry Boxx, saw Hero’s photos online and heard about his story. He became angry that somebody harmed an animal and decided to travel see the dog face to face . it had been love initially sight, and Larry adopted Hero. Larry says he didn’t rescue Hero, but instead Hero rescued him.

“I made a solemn vow to the universe that he would never be hurt, or hungry, or suffer in any way ever again, and fulfilling meaning everything to me,” Larry said.


We wish you both an extended and happy life together!
