|Animal humane officers are investigating a brutal beating and stabbing of a dog in Gassaway.|
"We are trying to get out as much information as possible," said Julie Covert, assistant humane officer for Braxton County Animal Control. "The reward fund is up to $6,500."
A news release from the Humane Society of the United States
said on July 17 local residents noticed a car drive past their home shortly before they heard a dog yelping and the car speed away.
A few hours later, the witnesses found a wounded female dog under their camper with several skull injuries, and she was immediately taken to the veterinarian.
An examination revealed her skull was split in two places and the right side of her skull was crushed and she was stabbed.
Due to the repercussions of the attack, she was euthanized.
The dog recently had puppies.
Anyone with information about the case is asked to call the shelter at 304-765-2200.
