Police in Mimai-Dade have initiated an investigation after a dog’s body was discovered in a burning box left on the side of a road Tuesday morning in the West Little River neighborhood. A passerby spotted the box on fire in the area of Northwest 95th Street and 25th Avenue early in the morning.
According to NbcNews, Miami-Dade police officers responded to the scene after a 911 call reported a dog had been set on fire. An officer put out the fire after arriving on the scene; Animal Services were also there. A necropsy will be done to determine the exact cause of the dog’s death.
A neighbor reported the dog was a female terrier mix that had been hit by a vehicle in the street and dragged to the side of the road. The witness told authorities he had been driving home when he saw a person in another car pull over and set the injured dog on fire. It is not known if the person owned the dog or if the dog was still alive when set on fire. No arrests have been made.
Three Miami-Dade detectives went door to door in the neighborhood looking for leads in the case. Bullies-N-Beyond Rescue is offering a $500 reward for any information that leads to an arrest.
