FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) -- Investigators in southwest Florida are trying to learn who hanged a dog from a tree. The male terrier mix was discovered Wednesday hanging from a tree in the Lee County community of Buckingham.
The dog appeared to have thrashed around and tried to escape, authorities told the local paper.
Glenn Johnson of the Lee County animal control said the dog's killer would face felony charges and said only a "nasty individual" would commit such a crime.
