Animal Care Services were called out to a home in the 4900 block of Concorde Thursday after receiving reports of a dog seen hanging from a fence.
Officers arrived at the location around 4 p.m. and found the dog dead.
An initial investigation showed that the dog had attempted to jump over the fence but its leash got caught, resulting in its death. Police contacted the homeowner, who claimed the dog.
Both Animal Care Services and the Corpus Christi Police Department's Criminal Investigation Division are looking into this case. A necropsy will be conducted by a veterinarian Friday.
