Officials are trying to determine who left a dog abandoned in the cold yesterday morning in Lincoln County.
A driver called in after seeing the dog tied to a post yesterday morning along Highway 51 near Merrill. Temperatures throughout the day struggled to reach single digits below zero. Lincoln County Deputies rescued the dog and brought it to the humane society.
The dog was thought to be in good health considering what it had been through. The male mixed bread was tied up with the leash.
Humane societies often remind pet owners that if they can’t care for their pets to drop them off at a shelter.
