Police discovered the dog’s remains on Tuesday, March 25. UAN’s $2,500 pledge brings the total reward being offered in this case to $5,000.
Officials are concerned that this case may be connected with one from August 2007, in which two dogs were found with a hind leg severed below the knee by a blunt instrument. The dogs survived and were adopted, but their legs had to be amputated.
