A horribly abused puppy, who suffered traumatic injuries across every portion of her body, was found hanging from a tree in Sacramento, California, on January 19. According to the Sacramento Bee, the local animal control agency has offered a $1,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of whoever is responsible for the puppy’s death.
A necropsy on the deceased mixed breed puppy revealed that the 12-pound pup had been terribly abused – there were “fractures from nose to tail,” and abdominal injuries. Chief animal control officer Jace Huggins stated, “These injuries suggest severe, severe abuse.”
The hanging puppy was found by a citizen along the levee in the 5000 block of Riverside Boulevard – the animal control agency is hoping to find the person responsible before they inflict harm again. Huggins stated:
“We hope someone will realize that maybe a friend’s dog disappeared, or that they saw something” that might help investigators solve the case and bring the perpetrator to justice.
Information about this cruelty case can be called in to Crime Stoppers at 916-443-HELP or to Officer Huggins at 916-808-5855.
