Owner of Dog Whose Mouth Was Taped Shut Finally Arrested

Cruel man, taped dog's mouth

The cruel man who taped his dog’s mouth shut with electrical tape has finally been arrest, and we can’t hope for enough bad things to happen to him…

William Leonard Dodson, 41, was apprehended for the abuse of Staffordshire Bull Terrier mix, Caitlyn, who was found neglected for weeks with electrical tape wrapped around her muzzle.

The 15-months-old dog (essentially a puppy) appeared on someone’s doorstep in North Charleston, U.S., and was rushed to the Charleston Animal Society (CAS) where she was treated for very severe injuries. It was thought she would lose her tongue as a result of it becoming rotten from lack of blood flow, but her amazing recovery shocked just about everyone.

Kay Hyman, CAS’ Director of Community Engagement, told the press:

We are supportive of the NCPD’s investigation and hope justice will be served in this case.

We are eager for whomever committed this crime to be held accountable and punished to the fullest extent of the law, which continues to be one of the nation’s weakest.
