According to the incident report, after knowledge of the fact, the PM started searching the region and found the animal in front of a residence. He was scared and with wounds on his belly, paws and all over his chest. The suspect in the crime of ill-treatment has not been located.
At the scene, according to the PM, a veterinarian was called, for the first care, and a team from the City Hall, who took the animal to the Zoonosis Control Center (CCZ), where it will continue to receive care for complete recovery.
“He will be neutered, microchipped and then available for adoption. Police are searching for the motorcycle driver. The event highlights the importance of microchipping as a tool to identify and locate the owners of animals who suffer abuse, since the name, address and contact details of the owner are recorded on the chip”, as disclosed by the City Hall.
Police said there are surveillance cameras at the scene, but it is not possible to identify the author and the license plate of the motorcycle. According to a whistleblower, the suspect would be a gentleman who raises horses near the site.
The g1 made contact with the Military Police, who confirmed the case and that the search continues to identify and locate the author.
