SPRINGTOWN, Texas (CBSDFW.COM/AP) – A reward of up to $5,000 is being offered for clues leading to the arrest and conviction of whoever shot a nursing dog and left her body in a cage by a North Texas roadside, along with her 10 puppies.
The grim find was made Wednesday morning in Springtown. Parker County Sheriff Larry Fowler says a school bus driver found the cage containing the body of the 3-year-old, red shepherd mix and her hungry, blood-caked puppies. The mother had been shot in the head.
“One of the puppies barely has its eyes open,” said Sheriff’s Animal Control Supervisor Karen Kessler.
The puppies are being cared for by the Angels & Outlaws 2nd Chance Bully Ranch in Hico. The Humane Society of the United States is offering the reward to find the killer.
Anyone with information relating to the case is encouraged to call the Parker County Sheriff’s Criminal Investigations Division at (817) 594-8845 or the Parker County Crime Stoppers Hotline at (817) 599-5555.
