Ingham County Animal Control has identified a person on interest in the case of the dog who was found hog-tied and left for dead in Lansing last week.
Director Jamie McAloon Lampman says they have "strong leads" thanks to interviews they've done. No arrests have been made.
The Capital Area Humane Society says the dog, Tatiana, spent a relaxing weekend in foster care with a staff member, and is now "acting like a normal dog," running around and chewing bones.
She was found last week, with her legs and mouth bound in electrical tape in a wooded area near Old Town. Her head was swollen from being beaten: that swelling has greatly decreased.
Tatiana will remain in foster care for some time, likely until after the investigation wraps up.
Several donations have poured into the Capital Area Humane Society. According to its website, people as far as Virginia, California, even Puerto Rico, have made contributions in Tatiana's name, totaling more than $5,000 as of Monday morning. People have also donated blankets, beds, toys and other items for Tatiana as she recovers.
If you'd like to make a contribution, contact the Capital Area Humane Society at 517-626-6060 or log onto www.cahs-lansing.org.
Animal Control is also looking for tips in the case of young pit bull that was found beaten and dead near Dwight Rich Middle School on Friday.
A reward of $1,000 is available for tips leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible.
Tips should be sent to 517- 676- 8376.
