OKLAHOMA CITY – A case of animal cruelty raises concerns for drivers who travel along a busy city street.
The rotting carcass of an abused pit bull has been decaying along S.W. 44th for four days.
The dog's body is tied to a tire.
The tire and carcass are sitting on the sidewalk in the path of children who walk to school at a nearby elementary.
According to Animal Welfare, the dog they have opened an animal cruelty case.
Tuesday Oklahoma City Police went to the scene, a front yard near S.W. 44th and Land.
"Their notes on the case indicate they spoke with the homeowner and he doesn't own any animals," Lowery said. "He's not real sure where the animal came from. So at this point the case may not go to far."

SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- The discovery of a dead pit bull found in a garbage bag across the street from a Southside Syracuse charter school has animal advocates outraged.
The dog's death comes roughly two months after the Syracuse common council addressed the communities concerns on dog abuse.
Officials with Cuse Pit Crew say the dog, who they've named Faith, was found by City Park Workers around 8 a.m. Wednesday along Onondaga Creek Boulevard. They say it's not clear how Faith died, but that she was severely malnourished and her teeth had been filed down.
Cuse Pit Crew's president and co-founder says that there will be zero tolerance for this type of behavior and that the crew is counting on the community to help bring Faith justice.
"Faith is not an isolated incident. There are abuse cases that happen every day and we're finding out more and more of these, but we need our community members to be the eyes and the ears for the police department and for the advocacy groups," said Stefanie Higgins.
Faith is described as a blue brindle pit bull with cropped ears and filed teeth.
If you have any information regarding the pit bull or her owner, you can anonymously contact the Syracuse Police Department at (315) 442-5200.
