UPDATE: Animal Control removed two dogs from the property early Saturday morning.
 
Neighbors are shocked and horrified about one of the dogs being found with duct tape wrapped around his mouth.
 
Jamie McQuade lives next door and knows the dog, Taz, as well as his owner.
 
"He's a really good dog," she said. "He doesn't bark much and when I saw his mouth taped shut, I was really confused, really sad and upset for him."
 
McQuade says the owner had trained Taz not to bark at her or her family.
