In Tulsa, Oklahoma, in a heartbreaking case of animal cruelty, a woman’s beloved elderly dog was found beaten and her body dumped in a drainage ditch at a nearby park.
On Thursday, David Woodruff and Sandra Rodriquez had been walking in Heller Park when they spotted the deceased dog lying in a ditch. Blood had been coming out of her ears and her legs had been tied together with zip lock ties. The pair pulled the dog out of the ditch and called police.
The dog, who was named Gracie, had been taken from her yard, beaten and then dumped according to KforNews. Gracie’s human, Sue Turner, is devastated and her heart aches for the dog she referred to as part of her family.
The Oklahoma Alliance for Animals has offered a $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person responsible for the heinous deed.
