Dog dragged by car died before it was dragged

News

A dog dragged along Highway 68 on Sunday died before it was dragged.

In a statement sent by East Feliciana Parish Chief Deputy Greg Phares, it states Pathologists at Louisiana Animal Disease Diagnostic Laboratory performed a necropsy on the dog.

“These facts do not support a charge of animal cruelty against the driver,” the statement said.

The dog was a Great Dane. This is an ongoing investigation.
