Jessamine County Animal Care and Control is asking the public to help them with an animal cruelty investigation.

On Saturday at around 4pm, deputies said they were called to Joe Cox Road to talk with someone who had found a deceased Pomeranian on their property.

A leash had reportedly been attached to the dog's collar and then duct taped to a rock. Afterward, the canine was said to have been placed onto a frozen pond in an attempt to drown the animal.

Investigators said the small dog had injuries that appeared to be gunshot wounds and they found shotgun shell casings close to where the Pomeranian's body was discovered.

They believe when the dog did not die from the drowning attempt, the person(s) responsible shot it.

A microchip in the canine told officials the dog was registered to Julie A. Land, who they said they have not been able to contact.

One witness said they saw a late 1990s green Ford Explorer speeding away around the same time the alleged animal cruelty took place.

If anyone has any information about where the Pomeranian's owner could be or any clues about what happened, please call Jessamine County Animal Care and Control at (859) 881-0821.
