A Texas man is mourning the loss of his eight-week-old puppy, “Sue,” who he found hanging from a tree in his yard on Monday. According to KHOU News, 18-year-old Cole Gilmore made the heartbreaking discovery after returning home from work.
Gilmore told the news agency that his dogs had all been taken off of their chains and were running free in his yard…the puppy, a Catahoula-Black Mouth Curr mix, was hanging in a tree from a nylon string. Gilmore contacted the authorities in Lampasas, but he claims that the deputy told him a police report filing was not necessary.
Lampasas County Sheriff Jess Ramos has stated that the case will be investigated, “as far as we can take it.” Sheriff Ramos claims that Gilmore did not want to file a police report.
The puppy’s owner is offering a reward for information leading to whoever is responsible for the heinous act of animal cruelty.
