Dog Dumped in Ditch in South Whitehall

An animal welfare group is asking for the public's help in identifying two men who threw a dog down a ditch off Route 309 in South Whitehall on Friday afternoon.


Two men in a dark-colored, older-model Honda threw a boxer-pit bull mix into a ditch Friday afternoon on Route 309 in South Whitehall, an animal welfare organization said in a release.

The Association for Animal Protection Legislation and Law Enforcement is asking for the public's help in identifying the men, and for help in the dog's care.

According to the organization, the two men threw the dog down an embankment on Route 309 between Route 22 and Tilghman Street about 2:30 p.m. "The dog was dazed, disoriented and lethargic," the release said. "After being rescued, all this dog wanted to do was sleep."

The dog is a male, un-neutered and red with some white coloring. He is thin for his size and shows neglect, the organization said. "There was no evidence that this dog was ever used for fighting," the release said. "He is friendly, good with people and appears to have a good disposition."

Anyone with information, or who wants to adopt the dog or help with his medical care, is asked to contact the organization at 610-770-0452.

Someone needs to starve these pieces of crap for a week or two..then toss them down an embankment...and leave them there! If they can do this to an innocent animal with no remorse there is no telling what else they are capable of!

Professional studies have proven that many abusers of animals become abusers of human beings. It is transferable. There is no cure to this mental sickness. That is why stringent laws need to be in place to incarcerate these violators of a simple decent and humane life. No "easy out" excuses. We need a strong legal force and laws to reinforce them all across this country to end these disgusting and horrific acts of violence. There is no rehabilitation. There is an abundance of hatred inside these individuals. Violence is their power. We need to speak for those with no voice of their own. If we don’t, if we just turn away, what does that mean for our society? What will become of us? We will be just as guilty as those who are committing these appalling acts.
