  • by: Colette Fontaine
  • recipient: Scarlett A. Wilson, Solicitor, South Carolina's Ninth Judicial Circuit.

Find and prosecute to the full extent of the law, a full 5 year prison term plus $5,000.00 fine the person or persons responsible for the horrific abuse of Caitlyn the dog found with her muzzle tapped shut with electrical tape so tightly that her tongue got caught between her teeth for up to 48 hours. Without the ability to pant or drink Caitlyn's life is in severe and very serious danger.

The Charleston Animal Society Senior Director of Veterinary Care, Dr. Lucy Fuller, DVM, said "Caitlyn is in a lot of pain, her condition is critical, and her prognosis is guarded." She also said that "A large part of her tongue may need to be removed surgically if the tissue dies from the lack of blood flow. She may be severely disfigured, or the large amount of dead tissue may cause life-threatening complications."

"This is the most malicious case of animal abuse I have ever seen in my entire career," said Charleston Animal Society Director of Anti-Cruelty & Outreach Aldwin Roman. He continued, "to leave this dog in pain, unable to eat or drink and to now leave her in the position where her life is at stake because she may lose her tongue is heartbreaking."
"North Charleston Animal Control is investigating the case and looking for whoever is responsible. Charleston Animal Society is offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible. If convicted of ill treatment of an animal, the guilty could face up to 5 years in prison and a $5,000 fine."
