Authorities seek more information after dog left outside clinic


TAZEWELL (WVVA) - Authorities are seeking information after a man is captured on surveillance video tying a dog up outside a Tazewell County clinic, then driving away.

The video was captured around 6 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 23, outside Crab Orchard Veterinary Services. The video -- originally released by the Tazewell County Sheriff's Office -- shows a man pull up to the closed clinic in a red pickup truck, get out with a beagle, tie the beagle to a bench and leave.

An employee at the clinic found the dog approximately 30 minutes later. It is now with a foster family.

The sheriff's office is seeking public tips to help locate the man in the video. Contact the sheriff's office regarding this case only if you have information that may be helpful to investigators.

Since temporarily posting the video to the sheriff's office Facebook page, deputies say they've been inundated with calls from people expressing their opinions on the situation. Residents are urged to only call the sheriff's office with helpful information.
