An abused young pit bull with a broken leg found in Lower Saucon Township has a new name - Anchor - because he was found tied to a boat trailer with a chain so heavy he couldn't lift his head.
A resident of a Kohler Drive apartment complex found the dog and called police Tuesday morning. Police are searching for the dog's owner.
Anyone with information about the dog is asked to call Cpl. Tim Connell of Lower Saucon Police at 610-330-2200.
This is just the latest of several animal cruelty cases in the Lehigh Valley this summer.
- A pit bull was found dumped in a ditch in South Whitehall Township a few days ago.
- A Northampton County man is facing charges after leaving horses and mules neglected and some injured in a Plainfield Township field.
- In June, a Lower Saucon man was cited for violating a firearms ordinance after he killed a dog with a pellet gun, saying the dog was attacking his rabbits and chickens.
