YORK, S.C. (AP) - An abused dog found tied up in freezing weather with his tongue cut out has died nearly a month later in South Carolina.

The Rock Hill Herald reports Noah’s Arks Rescue said on its website the dog, Briggs, died from sepsis on Tuesday night. The nonprofit group had been caring for the pit bull/lab mix in a 24-hour intensive care unit after he was found in York on Nov. 19.

A York police report said Briggs was likely used for dogfighting.

An 18-year-old passer-by had called police, who found the dog tied up without food or water.

Noah’s Arks said Briggs was being fed through a tube, but had recently learned to eat meatballs. He became septic due to the infections in his mouth, which spread to his bloodstream.
