Autistic Child’s Service Dog Kidnapped, Beaten, Killed, Then Tossed in Family’s Front Yard:
A Moncks Corner mother says she believes her daughter’s special needs service dog was hit on the side of the head with a baseball bat.
Toby was reported stolen last week, but over the weekend he turned up dead on the family’s front lawn.
“Devastated, absolutely devastated that someone can do something so horrendous, not just because he was a special pet to us, but just an animal in general, someone could be so disheartening,” Nolan said.
Nolan says it has been one of the worst weeks of her life.
Last Tuesday, witnesses said her daughter’s 3-year-old service dog Toby, an American Bull Terrier, was taken from her front yard and put in a car that drove off. Toby was trained to keep an eye on Nolan’s 9-year-old autistic daughter Allie.
