Police: Dog Stabbed in Neck

Officers are investigating a case in the Mount Vernon District.

Fairfax County police are asking for help in finding a person or persons who they believe stabbed a pit bull dog in the neck.

Animal control officers were called to pick up a dog about 9 a.m. Friday in the 3500 block of Rolling Hills Avenue. Cane, a 15-month-old white pit bull, was found with injuries to the left side of his neck.

A veterinarian determined the injuries were consistent with a stab wound.

The owner, who was unable to pay for the dog’s medical costs, turned Cane over to the shelter. Costs will be paid in part by the Fairfax County Animal Shelter and Friends of the Fairfax County Animal Shelter.

Anyone with information about the case is asked to contact Crime Solvers by phone at 1-866-411-TIPS (8477), by e-mail at www.fairfaxcrimesolvers.org or by texting “TIP187” plus your message to CRIMES (274637). They may also call Fairfax County police at 703-691-2131.

Martin, the same rules should apply to irresponsible people who want to have children. Kids are a lot more of a financial burden than abandoned pets, yet responsible people who don't have children pay more taxes. How does that even make any sense?

Laurie, Don't assume that because this dog is a pit, that he is aggressive.....not all pits are aggressive AND they become aggressive because of HUMAN cruelty..dog fighting, neglect, abuse. Any dog will become aggressive if abused and harmed. Look at this photo of the pit, he was stabbed and is not even attempting to harm the person holding his leash. Please do not assume that all pits are aggressive. Hold the coward who stabbed him responsible.
