Release from Dane County Sheriff's Office:

On Thursday, January 26, 2012, at 3:14pm, Dane County Deputies were dispatched to CTH A approximately ½ mile west of Bass Lake Road, in the Town of Rutland, for a deceased dog. Upon arrival, deputies located a Labrador Retriever lying in the ditch, adjacent to the eastbound lane of CTH A. The dog's front and rear legs were bound together with clear, plastic, packing tape. The dog's head, muzzle and nose were also covered with clear, plastic, packing tape. It appears the dog died as a result of suffocation.

The dog is described as a male, Chocolate Labrador Retriever. The dog is believed to be between 3 to 6 months old. The dog did not have a collar, tags or any other identifying information.

The Dane County Sheriff's Office is requesting anyone with information on the identity of the dog's owner or information regarding this incident to call the Dane County tip line at (608) 284-6900.
