Tuscarawas County Humane Society looking for man who left pig and dog stranded

NEW PHILADELPHIA, OH (WOIO) - The Tuscarawas County Humane Society is searching for a man who left a Golden retriever and a pot belly pig stranded outside the facility Wednesday night.

In the surveillance video below a man in a silver SUV pulled into the parking lot and tied the dog’s leash to a pole.

The pig was left outside in a cage.

We need help... anyone recognize this car? (Make/model/license plate) Person? Or the Golden receiver and/or pot belly pig? Update for those asking... the animals were left alone for approximately 4 hours when the Sheriff Department was dispatched who then called out Humane Officer. Thank you Sheriff's department who stayed with the animals until Our Humane officer could get there. As always our Humane Officer acted diligently to get to the animals even at midnight.. Both the Golden and the Pig are currently being evaluated by our veterinarian. They are both safe.
