A family in Salmon Creek, Washington, is grieving the unexpected and cruel loss of their dog, who they say was found dead and skinned on their fenced-in property. According to Monday’s ABC 10 News, “Mr. Magoo,” a Lhasa Apso, had been let out with another dog on John Gragg’s six-acres of property on Sunday morning.
Two hours later, only one of the dogs came back when called – a short time later, the body of Mr. Magoo was found near the back fence of the property. The injuries to the small dog’s body appeared to be the result of something human inflicted – even to the veterinarian who later examined Mr. Magoo’s body.
Gragg described the injuries, “It’s perfectly square. It looks like something was stuck in the side of the animal which could have been a knife or a shot to put the dog to sleep. It looked very professional.”
Gragg, and his partner, Susanne Baumann, want their neighbors to be aware that someone dangerous in the area seems to be targeting dogs, especially since the local authorities have refused to take a report. Gragg claims to have tried to report the cruel incident to the Clark County Sheriff’s office, but stated that since it wasn’t human related they refused to take action.
