In Detroit, a disturbing case of animal cruelty where a German shepherd had been shot and then left to hang on a fence with an electrical cord a few inches off the ground, remains unsolved. The Michigan Humane Society is seeking justice for the dog and has offered a $2,500 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible.
According to the organization’s press release, the dog’s body had been found behind a garage in the 5200 block of Devonshire Road on May 16. The dog had been shot several times and a bullet was recovered after a necropsy.
“After talking with potential witnesses we learned that less than 10 days prior, witnesses heard a dog screaming and then gunshots from the area which the dog was found,” Michigan Humane Investigator Sarah Schertel said in a statement.
The dog was still alive when he was tied to the fence and shot.
Tips about this animal cruelty case can be called into the Michigan Humane Society hotline at 313.872.3401 or at Crime Stoppers of Michigan at 800.SPEAKUP (773.2587).
A person found guilty of first-degree killing and/or torturing an animal faces up to ten years in prison.
