A dog drowned after it was chained to a stake and left outside during the storm Sunday night. It happened in Kanawha County, West Virginia.
A volunteer firefighter tells WSAZ.com that the dog was always chained and left alone. It does have a doghouse but she says the dog did not fit inside.
For several weeks, she's complained to the homeowner and the Humane Society but has been ignored. When flash floods hit overnight the dog was left to fend for itself. The water took over the homeowner's backyard and since the dog was chained and could not escape, it drowned.
The homeowner says he didn't realize it was going to rain that night and he didn't know there was a flood warning.
The Humane Society does not plan to press charges.
