In Maries County, Missouri, deputies from the Maries County Sheriff’s Office are investigating a disturbing incident near Belle where two puppies were skinned. The owner of one of the dogs stated his daughter discovered the puppy still alive on Thursday morning.
According to 13Krcg, the puppy was rushed to an emergency veterinarian clinic and the decision was made to humanely euthanize him. Authorities reported a knife had been used in an intentional act of animal cruelty.
Another dog discovered had a portion of his tail hide removed and was found at a house close to where the first puppy lived near the 33000 block of Missouri Route 42.
$5,000 REWARD OFFERED*****
We are still working the investigation into the Animal Abuse outside of Belle where the dogs were skinned. We are investigating injuries to three dogs on the same date. Two animals were younger in age with their injuries resulting from someone skinning them, one so serious a vet had to euthanize the animal. Another dog, older than the other two, was stabbed. We are still attempting to see if they are related incidents.
An organization called Guardians of Rescue has kindly and generously offered a $5,000 reward for information which leads to the arrest and conviction of the subject or subjects responsible for these horrendous attacks.
Authorities have not confirmed whether the two egregious animal cruelty cases are related, however they do not seem to be isolated incidents since a third dog was also recently stabbed.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the sheriff’s office at 573.422.3381. Be the voice for those who cannot speak. If you see something, say something.
