A Humane Society of Detroit, Michigan, is offering a $2,500 reward to anyone who offers information that leads to the capture of a person or persons who mutilated a Rottweiler. The Society’s official spokespersons said that the perpetrator(s) cut off the dog’s ears and nose before abandoning him in the street.
For some people, pet abandonment is just not enough, and they resort to all manner of brutal actions in order to punish their pets. Things like declawing a cat might seem appalling to owners who loves their pet, but some people prefer the easiest and more comfortable ways to ‘discipline’ a house pet.
And then, there are those who derive great pleasure from submitting their pets to brutal and unimaginable treatments. This is the case of a person from Detroit, Michigan, who believed that it was a great idea to mutilate a Rottweiler.
The dog was found wandering the streets of Michigan on Tuesday by a man who preferred to maintain his anonymity. The individual called Michigan’s Humane Society and told its representatives that he found a wounded Rottweiler on the street.
Minutes later, a team came arrived at the location indicated by the man, in order to pick up the dog in distress. The vets who examined the poor canine were simply appalled. According to Mark Ramos, the Humane Society’s lead investigator in a matter of animal cruelty, the dog was severely malnourished.
Moreover, it would also seem that someone cut off the dog’s ears and nose. The dog also had an injury on his back legs.
Mark Ramos declared that this one of the most horrific things he has seen in his career, and that he hopes that the person or persons who did this will be brought to justice. To this end, Michigan’s Humane Society offered a $2,500 cash reward to anyone who offers pertinent information that may lead to the capture or conviction of the individual or individuals involved in the dog’s mutilation.
Last year, the same Human Society offered a $1,000 reward for information that would lead to the arrests and conviction of an individual who impaled a cat using a crossbow bolt. The cat had a perforated lung, but the vets managed to save her life after a concerned citizen brought her in.
We will keep you posted if there are any developments in the case of the mutilated Rottweiler.
