Stray Dog Was Found With “Free” Spray Painted On His Body

A stray dog who liked to roam was the victim of a heinous act, prompting the Broadwater County Sheriff’s Office in Montana to initiate an investigation. The dog was discovered on the side of the road with the word “Free” spray painted on him.

On Thanksgiving Day, a photo of the dog went viral on Facebook, sparking an outraged response from animal lovers seeking justice for the dog.

It turns out that the dog’s owner was not responsible, but that the dog was likely the victim of someone likely angry by the dog’s wandering ways.

Undersheriff Brandon Harris told KRTV News that the owner was not responsible and took good care of dog, but agreed with the police that it would be best to rehome the dog. The dog has gone to a new home and has been renamed “Freedom”.

“I’m sure it was a message to the actual owner of the dog, and I just think you went about it the wrong way,” Harris added. “We’re there. We can come out and pick up the dog, if need be.”

Harris added that they are still investigating to find the person(s) responsible. The individual could face animal cruelty charges.

Freedom is “going to a family with lots of room and LOVE,” according to the person who shared the photo on Facebook.

While it’s a relief to know that the dog’s owner was not responsible for the mistreatment, it’s still important to hold accountable those who would commit such an act. Hopefully, the investigation by the Broadwater County Sheriff’s Office will lead to justice for the dog and send a message that such acts of cruelty will not be tolerated.

Overall, the story is a reminder of the importance of treating animals with compassion and respect, and the importance of standing up against cruelty and mistreatment.
