In Defiance, Ohio, the humane society received a disturbing call on Wednesday describing a dead dog that had been beheaded, skinned and tossed into the river. According to the Fort Defiance Humane Society, the dog was found under a bridge near Domersville Road. The dog is medium sized with a light brown coat and only had half of his tail.
The Fort Defiance Humane Society’s Facebook page stated an investigator determined the dog’s feet had been bound together, he had been skinned, decapitated and wrapped in a brown towel. When he was discovered the remains had been shoved into a garbage bag and tossed into the river.
“The pictures are horrific. The feeling of not saving this animal is indescribable. This happens every where. Every day. Every single day innocent animals are tortured while the perpetrator walks freely. To us, this is unacceptable. We are here to be their voice. To give animals their second chance, to love them, to not allow them to be abused, abandoned, or discarded ever again. This happens in our county. In our town. In our backyards. Be the force to end animal cruelty. Do not stay quiet. Be the somebody that saves an innocent soul,” the organization wrote on their Facebook page.
A $2,000 reward has been offered for the arrest and conviction of the person(s) responsible for this heinous crime. Anyone with information is asked to call the Fort Defiance Humane Society at 419.658.2298.

Rest in peace sweet dog. We are so sorry that humans failed you like this, but we are hoping the responsible person is apprehended and punished to the highest extent of the law.
