Pit bull spray-painted, then dumped
A posting on the park’s Facebook page prompted a call to the Yamhill Communications Agency, according to Capt. Ron Huber of the sheriff’s office. Sgt. Brian Young was in the area and responded to the park.
The dog was transported to a Newberg veterinarian for treatment stemming from the paint attack. When it recovers sufficiently, it will be transported to Yamhill County Dog Control facilities at the fairgrounds.
The dog is believed to be less than 2 years of age. The sheriff’s office has been unable to locate an owner so far because the dog did not have either a collar or microchip.
A Facebook poster said, “People were waiting to go into the park, but were hesitant because they didn’t know if the dog would be aggressive or not. The dog was huddled in a corner and shaking.”
Another poster wrote, “I am so upset about this.”
Anyone with potentially relevant information is asked to call the sheriff’s office at 503-7506.
