Dead dog found on school track

A dead dog, with a gunshot wound to the head, was discovered on a middle school track in Richmond, Virginia, on Monday. As reported by Richmond.com, the black and white, female pit bull was on the track of the Martin Luther King Jr. Middle School.

On Wednesday, the Richmond Animal Care and Control agency issued a public plea for help on social media:

The dog was a black and white female pit bull with no identification and had been shot in the head. We are looking for any and all information related to this crime. The photos of her body are to gruesome for public viewing so we will share her description with further detail. 

The dog, dubbed Bella, weighed 45 pounds and had a black body with a white stomach and chest – her front legs had white stockings and the toes on the rear were white. Anyone with information is asked to reach out to Crime Stoppers at (804) 780-1000 or www.7801000.com.
