A Knoxville Police Department officer was parked near an overpass on Alcoa Highway at 3AM, when he heard suspicious sounds coming from the vicinity.
The officer could make out some cursing and grunting coming from a man on the overpass, which was quickly followed by a loud thud of something being thrown to the ground.

The officer rushed out to investigate the situation and was horrified to discover a young female dog lying in a pool of blood under the overpass.
She was bleeding from her mouth and paws, while her back leg was broken on impact from the 30-foot drop off the overpass.
The officer drove the dog to the UT Veterinarian Medical Facility for emergency aid. After her health stabilized, she was transferred to Young-Williams Animal Center for long-term treatment.
While her life is not at risk at the moment, vets fear that she has been maimed for life.
