Authorities looking for suspects who abandoned emaciated dog

The Prince George's County Animal Management Division is looking for suspects who dumped a severely emaciated dog in Clinton, Md.

The dog, a female Mastiff, was found on Gallahan Road. Authorities believe she was dumped sometime on February 8.

Mastiffs normally weigh between 140 and 150 pounds, but the dog, who has been nicknamed "Violet," weighs just under 57 pounds. She was the victim of cruelty and the department of Animal Management wants to prosecute the perpetrator.

Anyone with information regarding Violet is asked to contact Prince George's County, Animal Management Division at (301) 780-7241.
