Police in Lancaster County are investigating a possible case of animal cruelty after a dog was found injured in Manheim Township.

Township police said the injured pit bull was found Tuesday night in the 1400 block of Vermont Avenue.

Police initially thought the dog may have been shot in a nearby wooded area, but a Stefanie Zimmerman, manager of VCA Bridgeport Animal Hospital, said the pit bull was struck by a car.

The Lancaster SPCA is currently covering its medical costs, and the costs of repairing crushed bones in his head are expected to reach between $2,000 and $3,000, according to director Susan Martin.

The dog also suffered sinus cavity damage and severe damage to his left eye.

Martin said the owner has 48 hours to come forward before the dog is considered abandoned.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Manheim Township Police Department at 717-569-6401.
