Charges are pending after an Illinois man moved out of his house leaving behind his dog to die in a cage.

Neighbors told WQAD the man had moved out a week before the dog was discovered on Monday.

The pit bull, which neighbors say was a year old, was left in a cage in the backyard of the Rock Falls home with a small blanket and an empty food bowl.

The dog was found by a cleaner employed by the property’s landlord.

Animal controllers officers had been tipped off by the man’s ex-wife a week earlier but didn’t find anything when they visited the property.
