Puppy found tied in sheet, dumped at Florida intersection, police say

A puppy was found tied in a sheet and dumped at a busy intersection in Florida, and the Brevard County Sheriff's Office is asking for the public's help to find the culprit.

According to Ivey, a park employee found the puppy tied up at an intersection in Melbourne, Florida, around 8 a.m. Tuesday.

“We want the person who did this in our jail. Anyone who would do this to an animal would certainly hurt a human. So, we need him safely behind bars at the Brevard County Jail,“ Ivey said.

Ivey said the puppy most likely would have gotten run over by a car if it had not been found.

The sheriff said the person who dropped the puppy in the road drove away in a small, black sports car.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Melbourne Police Department Tip Line at 321-608-8477 or the department’s Animal Cruelty Unit at 321-633-2024.
