ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – Saint Louis County Animal Care and Control is asking for help in an investigation of animal cruelty.

The organization says “Lucky” the dog was brought in by someone who witnessed him being thrown from a vehicle while driving on I-70.

Saint Louis County Health Department director Delores Gunn says a woman driving on the interstate watched someone in a car “literally toss the dog out of the window.” The woman immediately pulled over and took the dog to a local animal hospital, she says.

Police are looking for the driver of a black sedan, and they say they want to file animal abuse charges.

Their veterinary team X-rayed and examined Lucky, and found that he had a dislocated hip among other minor injuries. They say he is doing well and expected to make a full recovery.

Saint Louis County Animal Care and Control says they are investigating the incident as a case of animal cruelty, but no leads have been found.

Anyone with information is asked to call their help line 314-615-0654 and leave a detailed message or email them at animals.doh@stlouisco.com.
