The Webster Humane Association is offering a reward for the arrest of the person responsible for duct taping a dog and tossing her onto I-20.

The Humane Association says that the dog, which the association named Faith, was found near mile marker 40 eastbound on I-20 in Webster Parish. The dog’s legs were allegedly duct taped together and she was dragged repeatedly down the interstate as well as run over.

On Saturday, September 30, 2018, the humane association reported that Faith had sustained too many injuries to recover including multiple skull fractures, head and eyes swollen, and her body covered in road rash and wounds.

A Webster Parish Sheriff’s Officer found the dog on the roadway and rushed to Claiborne Animal Clinic with her. Faith died due to the extent of her injuries.

“No animal could ever do anything to warrant this type of cruelty. The person(s) responsible are monsters,” The Webster Humane Association said on their Facebook page.

Webster Humane Association is offering a $2,500 reward for the arrest and conviction of the person(s) responsible. Those who may know who is responsible are urged to call 318-377-7433 with any information. Callers will remain anonymous.
