A hefty reward has been offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of whoever is responsible for a brutal beating which left a puppy so severely injured that she had to be humanely euthanized. According to the Clarion-Ledger, In Defense of Animals is offering the $2500 reward to help bring justice to the grievously abused puppy dubbed “Thursday.”
The puppy was found on December 15 in a Jackson, Mississippi, park. The man who made the grim discovery reached out to the Animal Rescue Fund. The animal welfare agency described the horrific injuries the puppy had suffered:
We received a call about an injured puppy. When he described the injuries, we jumped and ran to the address he gave. When he brought out the puppy, we wept. We can not post all the photos we have, because they are too gruesome for even the most seasoned rescuer. The puppy we named Thursday had been beaten with some blunt object. Her head was swollen to three times its normal size, she had lost an eye and her lower jaw.
Thursday was so badly injured that humane euthanasia was the only option. Anyone with information about this cruel case is asked to reach out to the Jackson Police Department or In Defense of Animals at 662-809-4483.
