Wichita police seek person who killed abused dog

January 18, 2019

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Wichita police are asking the public for help identifying whoever dumped a dog that was shot to death and showed signs of abuse and scars.

The brown pit bull’s body was found earlier this week south of downtown Wichita. Police spokesman Charley Davidson said the dog had injuries consistent with illegal dog fighting.

A witness told police the driver of a yellow station wagon dumped the dog.

The Wichita Animal Action League said on its Facebook page that the dog apparently was shot in the head at point-blank range. The group says the dog appeared t have been bred repeatedly and forced to fight and likely was killed after she “outlived her usefulness.”

The Animal Action League is offering a $3,000 reward, with another $2,500 reward possible from Crime Stoppers.
