GEORGETOWN, S.C. — The Georgetown County Sheriff’s Office is investigating after a dog’s sex organ was cut off in Andrews.
Authorities say on Thursday, June 9, deputies met the dog’s owner who said when he arrived to his home on Winterberry Drive, his yellow lab retriever walked to him, bleeding from his penis area, according to an incident report.
The owner took the dog to a vet who said it appeared that someone had completely cut the dog’s penis off. She also noticed more cuts around the fleece that covered around the area, the incident report added.
The dog then underwent surgery.
We’ve learned from the dog’s owner that once in awhile the animal jumps the front fence by the driveway to get out and roam the area. The owner added that someone had to cut the dog when it was roaming around the neighborhood.
