Missing Dog Found Covered In Duct-Tape, Discarded In Dumpster

Omaha, Nebraska – A dog who disappeared from his family’s home last week was discovered in a dumpster on Monday morning. The dog, Leo, had been covered in duct-tape and was discarded in a dumpster outside of Sweet and Associates in Omaha.

An employee at the firm heard what she thought was a raccoon in the dumpster, but it turned out to be Leo, covered in tape around his legs and face.

Nebraska Humane Society said:

The poor pup was rushed to NHS where staff sedated him and removed the tape and cleaned off the gunk – they had to shave him to remove all of the debris.
He has some mild skin irritation,but is otherwise healthy and seemed to be in good spirits despite his condition. After the tape had been removed, he perked up and was wagging his tail as our team carefully assessed him.

Leo had an embedded microchip which allowed shelter staff to reach his owner. After reaching his family, they learned that he had been reported missing on April 11. The shelter shared Leo’s owner’s comments after learning what happened to her dog:

“He’s the sweetest dog! I don’t know why anyone would do this,” said Erin, who was incredibly emotional upon learning what happened. She is going to be giving him a nice bath and taking him to his vet for a full checkup.”

  1. Poor little Leo…what he’s been through should only ever be suffered by the sadistic cowardly cretins who do these things to innocent helpless beings. Dear, sweet lives should never be put through hell. These evil fools surely must have hell to pay for what they’ve done.

  3. We are truly the most dangerous and invasive species on the planet, despite the many good and caring people who exist. I will never understand how people can be so cruel and violent to nonhuman animals.

  4. Law enforcement must find the person/s who did this to Leo. If they are not caught they will do it again. Such arrogance & superior mindedness is dangerous to society & community. FIND THEM! HOLD THEM ACCOUNTABLE for what they did to a sweet helpless dog. EVIL EXISTS!

  5. You know it was someone in that family. Nobody “steals” a dog and duct tapes and discards it like that. This was not a torture thing this was a gat rid of the dog thing.

    • I agree with you, it was either someone in the family OR it was a close neighbor that knew there was NO camera where they dumped the dog!!

  6. I hope whomever removed the duct tape was wearing gloves and saved the tape for the police. The fingerprints of the a-hole responsible are all over it, & with any luck this pos has an arrest record.
