He Was Bound To A Tree With His Snout Tied Shut While Maggots Ate Him Alive

He had been tightly tied to a tree by his back leg, and his mouth was zip tied shut so he wasn't able to bark for help or chew through the rope to escape.

The Humane Society of the us is now offering a gift up to $5,000 for any information resulting in the identification, arrest and conviction of the person(s) liable for abandoning a dog in Saint Paul, Minnesota.

The malnourished dog, who was found during a forest near 4th and Clarence, was covered in maggots and had wire around his leg and snout.



Saint Paul Animal Control received a call from an honest Samaritan who found the dog. When officers arrived, they saw the dog had been tied to a tree by his back leg. His mouth was zip-tied shut so he wasn’t ready to chew through the rope to flee or bark for help.

The rope and zip-tie were on him so tightly that they were embedded in his skin right right down to the bone.



It’s unknown how long he had been engaged there for, but animal control believes he may are there for up to 2 weeks.

The dog, now named Riptide, has proven to be a fighter. he's now being cared for at Rescued Pets Are Wonderful (RPAW), a non-profit in Blaine, Minnesota.

He underwent a successful surgery to possess his leg amputated, and he's now doing great. Despite everything he’s been through, he still wags his tail and greets staff.



City of Saint Paul Animal Control Officers are investigating this case, and ask anyone with any information to call their facility at 651- 266-1100 or email: molly.lunaris@ci.stpaul.mn.us.
