A family’s senior dog was stolen from a residence in Swatara Township, Pennsylvania, tortured and then dumped along a road miles away. According to PennLive, the nine-year-old Boston terrier mix suffered severe injuries which proved to be fatal.
The senior dog, named Bella, was taken from her home on Friday while her family was away. Later, the grievously wounded dog, suffering from multiple stab wounds and a slit throat, was found on the 300 block of Rupp Road; someone in the area reported seeing the dog being left by a male. Bella was taken to a veterinarian for care, but her injuries were too severe for her to be saved.
Bella’s family wants to know who is behind the reprehensible crime. Her owner, Carolyn Dymond, told the news agency, “I just need to know who did this to her. She was left there to die.” Adding, “I just don’t know who would have done this to her.”
The authorities are hoping to find and charge whoever is responsible. Information about this animal cruelty case should be called in to the Swatara Township police at 717-558-6900.
