Syracuse, NY -- A dog was thrown out a fourth-floor window on Syracuse’s Eastside this morning and police are trying to find the person responsible.
About 7:30 a.m., construction workers saw the dog get thrown from a window at 1809 E. Fayette St., Sgt. Tom Connellan said.
The dog, a pit bull mix about 1 year old, suffered multiple injuries when it landed, including two broken back legs, broken ribs and internal injuries, Connellan said.
When police arrived at the apartment the dog was thrown from, there was no one there, Connellan said. Connellan was unsure if the dog had tags.
Police have some leads on who might have thrown the dog and the investigation is continuing.
The dog was originally taken to a Bridge Street veterinarian but was transferred to the DeWitt Animal Hospital.
A woman who answered the phones at DeWitt Animal Hospital said she was instructed by police not to give out any information. Dewitt Animal Hospital: (315) 446-1200
I called there and was told to call and ask to speak to the police involved if I had questions.
The dog is supposedly still alive but it at the veterinarian who contracts with the City of Syracuse to put down all dogs brought in. This vet (Dewitt Animal Hospital) puts down any dog that is not claimed by day 5 for the city.
Here is a petition from a few years back about the place.
Contact Van Robinson, President of Syracuse City Council to confirm that the City of Syracuse has a contract with Dewitt Animal Hospital to do their dirty deeds.
