NEW YORK (AP) - The ASPCA is offering a $5,000 reward in the case of a German shepherd found abandoned with his mouth taped shut along a busy Long Island highway.

The reward for information leading to an arrest is in addition to the $2,000 being offered by the Suffolk County SPCA, which is leading the investigation.

The frightened dog was found on April 9 on the Montauk Highway in Lindenhurst. The duct tape prevented him from breathing, eating or drinking properly.

ASPCA law enforcement official Howard Lawrence calls it a “sickening case.”

The dog is currently being cared for by the Babylon Animal Shelter in West Babylon.

Anyone with information about this case is asked to contact the Suffolk County SPCA at 631-382-7722. All calls will be kept confidential.
