Reward increases to find person who clipped carabiner to husky’s skin

The SPCA in Monterey County is hoping a $5,000 reward will help find and convict whoever clipped a carabiner clip through a dog’s skin and chained the animal to clumps of concrete earlier this month. The injured husky found by sheriff’s deputies the evening of Aug. 3 was in a culvert on Armstrong Road in unincorporated Salinas, according to the Monterey County officials.

Officials said the clip had likely been attached to the young dog for more than 10 days. The carabiner has been removed and the dog is expected to make a full recovery.

About a year old, the husky is now named Neil and is recovering at Monterey County Animal Services.
