Dog With Duct-Taped Snout Rescued After Sightings

LONACONING, Md. (AP) — After nearly a weeklong search by dozens of volunteers and local and state officials, a dog whose snout had been duct-taped has been rescued.

The Allegany County Bureau of Police said the dog was rescued Sunday afternoon when a Lonaconing resident found the animal on her porch. Animal Control officers took the dog to a veterinarian to have the duct tape removed.

The male dog, who has been named Ducky, is still at the vet’s.

Police say the dog was dropped off in Allegany County with duct tape around its mouth. The dog was spotted several times, but always ran into the woods.

Police have charged Ricky Adams, 25, of Cumberland and Frederick Lease, 27, of Mount Savage with animal cruelty in the case.

    25 and 27 years old and taping a dogs mouth shut.! Die! Do the world a favor and remove yourself from the gene pool. You don’t deserve to consume oxygen meant for humans.

  3. Edward says:

    What cowards. I feel sorry for the dog.

  4. Stephen Gunther says:

    Strip them nude then duct tape their mouths and private parts plus tie the hands behind them and dump them in the woods.

  5. Doug says:

    Someone duct tape the both of them to a table and castrate the losers.
    We as a society can’t afford to have violent people breeding

    They sound ike real winners. As part of their punishment maybe we can have every single citizen of the state of Maryland file through in a single line & let them know just how intelligent we think they are. After the first few thousand insults maybe they’ll be grounded enough.

    I agree w/ Mr. Gunther but would add that these two people should be dropped off “somewhere” in the middle of the Appalacian Trail w/ no “alerts” as to their where- abouts!!!! There needs to be a special HELL for people who do such things to innocent beings.

      Hell is Hell and I can’t imagine anything worse – they will have their day!

Someone need to duck tape their Mouth and hands and drop them off in a remote area and leave them there for a week to see how well they do… They need to be put in jail for a long time…May God have mercery on their Souls…

    tape their mouth shut lets see if they would like it

  12. Enoughisenough says:

    Only word for people like this is COWARD. Too weak and scroungie to pick on another human so they have to take it out on an animal. Weak, sorry little COWARDS! Thank goodness someone finally found the dog. So very sad.

  13. Jodi says:

    You can follow Ducky’s recovery on facebook. His site is We Love Ducky. He is beautiful dog, inside and out. We are very thankful he was found and is receiving treatment and love now!

  14. Sarah Sams says:

    I cannot explain or describe in words how many different cruel ways i want him to die. I’m sick of these cowards.

  15. Myron Williams says:

    Just can’t imagine a punishment harsh enough for these two low life’s that would be fitting and fit their crime against one of God’s gifts to mankind. How low and sad their little lives must be to do such a thing. I can’t find the words to express my gratitude and thanks to all those who gave of themselves to help little Ducky, THANK YOU ALL!

  16. DONA YOUNG says:

    I CAN ONLY HOPE AND PRAY THAT THE JUDGE WILL GO THE DISTANCE AND PUT THEM AWAY FOR A LONG TIME. I KNOW DUCKY WILL END UP IN A GOOD HOME. THANKS TO ALL OF YOU WHO HELPED THIS POOR DOG.

  17. pigeon says:

    Duck tape their mouths shut so they can’t talk, eat or drink.
    Undoubtedly they will get off with nothing more then their hands slapped and told not to do it again.
    Bet their families are really proud of them – NOT! Hope they don’t have children – what an example of adulthood those children should never see.
    To those who came to the aid of Ducky, thanks and God bless you. Although I am sure he has already shown his appreciation with licks and tail wagging!
    There is enough trash laying around – just send them to the “ivory coast” or Libya for some rest and relaxation!

    Fredrick Lease has a multitude of previous charges, some very recent, for everything from burglary, to child abuse, to assault and domestic violence. He obviously cannot obey the rules and cannot function in our society. Why has he had 20 chances to f up and get off scott free? I hope the judge, THIS TIME, sees what a violent and mentally ill person this man is and keeps him locked away where he can’t torture anyone else.
