Dog found dead inside floating wire cage

The body of a dog found floating inside a wire cage has led to the opening of an investigation by the Vicksburg Police Department.

Monday morning, officers responded to a report of animal cruelty on Ford Road in the Kings community. Animal Control personnel discovered the body of a dog, possibly a male pit bull, floating inside the cage in floodwater.

According to a release from the police department, the exact cause of death of the animal could not be determined due to the condition of the body after it was removed from the water.

There were no identifying features, such as tags, that have helped in identifying the dog or its owners.

Anyone with information regarding this is asked to contact the Vicksburg Police Department at 601-636-2511 or the City of Vicksburg Animal Shelter at 601-636-6982.
