A dog that had been strangled, beaten and suffered neurological damage was found abandoned in the middle of a busy roadway in Central Islip on Tuesday night, Suffolk County authorities said.

The Pit Bull was found at the corner of Route 111 and Sage Street with a strangulating cable tied around its neck and a bloody plastic bag nearby, according to the Suffolk County SPCA.

The dog was taken to Veterinary Medical Center of Long Island in West Islip for treatment.

A $2,000 reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for beating and abandoning the dog.

Suffolk County SPCA investigators ask anyone with information on this case to call them at 631-382-7722. All calls will be kept confidential.
