Lehigh Acres, FL (News-Press) -- The gray and silver terrier mix may have fought and thrashed to escape before it died, but didn't have a chance.

The dog was found hanging from a large oak tree in Buckingham on Wednesday and police and animal services officials are seeking information from the public about the circumstances surrounding its death.

The dog may have been hanged while alive, according to the Lee County Domestic Animal Services incident report and Glenn Johnson, animal services operations manager.

The Lee County Sheriff's Office received two calls about 8 a.m. Wednesday from area residents and notified animal services, Johnson said. The animal was discovered in an area of dirt roads on the east side of Homestead Lane between Staley and Neal roads.

Its leash was tied to a nylon rope, the report said.

The adult male dog had marks around its neck, and appeared as if the dog had thrashed around trying to escape, Johnson said. A necropsy will be performed to determine the exact manner of death.

"It's a felony charge, a third-degree felony for someone to intentionally kill an animal, especially this way," Johnson said. "That would be a nasty individual who would do that to any living being." :(

Anyone with information is asked to call Animal Services at 239-533-7387 or Crime Stoppers at 800-780-8477. You can also text Crime Stoppers.

"All you hope is that somebody talks about it," Johnson said.

It boggles my mind when I hear about this kind of thing, or animal cruelty in general. How could anyone do this to an animal? :(

I thought I was going to stay in Fribourg this weekend, but now I want to head back to Geneva and see my dogs.

As a dog owner, the man or woman that did this should be charged with murder, because it is murder, but they don't consider it murder because the dog is not human.

Why the hell would you do this to a dog? This is boggles my mind of how sick (in the bad term) this is. I hope whoever done this goes to jail. This is not a cool thing to do with a living creature especially man's best friend...

Absolutely disgusting. The person that did this should be hung.

I wish when things like this happens and they found the person who did it. I wish they'd advertise their name and address. So some of us can give them the exact same treatment.

Find them, hang them from a tree, skin them alive, poor vinegar over them, shoot them.

I'm a firm believer for dogs & cats and other domestic pets should be treated as human, then if anyone kills them etc they should be charged as if it were a human.

This is the type of human being I would gladly trade his/her life for the dog's.

This isn't even human. It's sub-human.

But we can murder innocent babies and that is ok? While what this moron did was reprehensible, where is the outrage when human life is snuffed out in the womb?

This is one of those instances where eye-for-eye, tooth-for-tooth, sounds appropriate.
