Bluebell was nearly dragged to death in December, but that is clearly not enough for the LA District Attorney’s office to press charges against the dog’s former owner, Bryana Wilson.
Workers at the Southeast Area Animal Care Agency (SEAACA) were stunned when they saw Bluebell choking and bleeding as she was dragged on a chain behind a truck pulling into the shelter’s parking lot.
The owner of the dog, Bryana Wilson of Norwalk was bringing the then one year old, “Prada” to the animal shelter to be killed because of an undiagnosed skin problem, which turned out to be an easily curable case of mange.
Wilson put the dog in the back of an open pick up truck, tied her to the truck bed with a leash and, at some point during the drive, the dog fell out of the truck (or jumped out of the truck as the owner claimed) and was dragged for blocks. Meanwhile, a horrified motorist was screaming, waving and honking for the owner to pull over but Wilson didn’t notice.
It wasn’t until Wilson was met with a very upset crowd of at least 15 people that she realized what had happened. When Wilson got to the shelter, the bloody dog had lost consciousness after being nearly dragged to death. SEAACA cited the owner and took custody of the dog to provide veterinary care.
