A reward is being offered to catch the persons responsible of a brutal attack against a dog who was found with its ears and nose cut off, along with cuts in its tail.
The Michigan Humane Society is offering $2,500 reward after a dog was found with the savage wounds in Detroit, on the city’s southwest side.
The Rottweiler was rushed to the MHS’ Mackey Center for Animal Care in Detroit and is being treated by the shelter’s veterinarian staff.
‘It appears that someone purposely maimed this poor dog, which has caused it a great deal of suffering,’ said Mark Ramos, one of MHS’ lead cruelty investigators to Fox 32.
‘This kind of cruelty is unacceptable. We need to be a voice for these animals and as a community we need to speak through our strong actions to make sure this doesn’t happen again.
The dog remained at the Mackey Center as staffers monitored his health and determine the best course of treatment, said Kathy Bilitzke, the society’s communications director.
Meanwhile, MHS is working with a coalition of rescue groups to canvass the area where he was found and distribute fliers seeking tips to find whoever hurt him, she said.
The cash reward will be paid if a tip leads to an arrest and conviction.
