The Humane Society is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to the conviction of whoever raped and killed a dog in Thurston County, Washington. The dog, a pit-bull, died of asphyxiation from being hanged from the tree with its feet barely touching the ground. There was evidence that the bitch had been severely sexually assaulted while it was restrained.
The FBI is involved with the investigation. Dan Paul, Washington state director for The HSUS said: ‘This is a truly horrific situation in all aspects. To think about the suffering this dog experienced in her final moments, as well as knowing there’s an individual or individuals in our state who would perpetrate this type of abuse, is sickening.”
