An animal protection organization is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the person responsible for abandoning a dog with zip ties around its mouth and neck in a remote area of ​​Malibu, California.

The German Shepherd was found in a remote area near Malibu Creek Canyon on July 3 by two people who were hiking around 7:45 p.m.

According to a press release from the organization In Defense of Animals, the dog’s mouth was closed with a zipper and another cable tie was tightening around its neck.

“We are grateful for the quick actions of these hikers and authorities, but our efforts must continue,” said Fleur Dawes, communications director for In Defense of Animals.

“This dog was left to suffer and die in a remote location. We urge anyone with information about this cruel act to come forward. We are determined to find the person responsible for this horrific abuse and hold them accountable as they pose a danger to others.”

The hikers called 911 and were able to remove the bridle from the dog’s mouth themselves.

The dog was soon freed from the restraints with the help of police and animal control personnel.

“The dog, described as sweet and gentle, gradually warmed up to his rescuers, allowing them to pet him and even eat from their hands. He has since been transported to the Agoura Animal Care Center where he is receiving the necessary care and attention,” the statement said.

The organization is seeking the public’s help in finding information that will lead to the identification, arrest and conviction of the person responsible for this incident. Anyone with information is asked to call 415-879-6879.
