Police in Fort Smith, Arkansas, are hoping for leads in a disturbing case of animal cruelty involving a puppy who was decapitated. According to KNWA, the puppy’s decapitated body was found outside, near a dog kennel, at a residence in the 700 block of North 34th Street- the deceased puppy’s head was nowhere to be found.
Two people who live at the home told the authorities that the dogs and puppies at the home were fine when they were checked on around 10 p.m. The same could not be said hours later when the dogs and puppies were checked again around 2 a.m. According to the women, the adult dogs were outside of the fenced area and the deceased, headless puppy was laying on the ground by a kennel.
In a report, Officer Kelsey Sharp noted that the decapitation appeared to be a clean cut and that the gate to the yard had been left open – leading the authorities to believe that someone entered the property and used a sharp object to remove the puppy’s head. Nobody seems to have any clues about who might be behind the cruel act.
Someone knows who is responsible
Anyone with information about the puppy’s killer is asked to call the Fort Smith police at (479) 709-5100.
