Reward Offered For Information On Dog’s Torture, Death

FALLING WATERS, W.Va. (AP) — A reward of up to $5,000 is being offered for information leading to the conviction of those responsible for a dog’s torture and death in West Virginia’s Eastern Panhandle.

The Humane Society of the United States says in a news release that a family found its dog hanging by its neck on their driveway gate in Falling Waters on Saturday, two days after it disappeared.

The statement says the husky, which had gone missing from a run line, was gutted and butchered.

“The amount of pain and fear this poor dog likely suffered is unimaginable,” said Heather Severt, the Humane Society West Virginia state director “The perpetrator’s acts display an alarming lack of compassion for life, and also signals that he or she is a substantial threat to the community.”

The statement says anyone with information about the case can call the Berkeley County Sheriff’s Department at (304) 267-7000.
