The Coffee County Sheriff’s office is looking for whoever is responsible for dumping a dead donkey’s body along the side of a county road.
While the photo is disturbing, Deputy Sean McElroy says the donkey was actually euthanized before it was dumped on Sikes Road, and there were no signs of abuse.
However, he says whoever dumped the animal carcass didn’t dispose of it properly.
Deputies got a call Sunday morning after someone spotted the dead donkey. Animal control also responded.
He says the straps were put on the donkey, apparently to help move it onto a trailer and dump it, but they didn't follow through.
McElroy says whoever owned the donkey could be fined for illegal dumping.
