$2,500 Reward For Information About Dog Stabbed With a Knife and Left For Dead
Dog suffered greatly and was humanely euthanized due to the severity of its injuries

DETROIT – The Michigan Humane Society (MHS) Cruelty Investigation Department is offering a $2,500 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the individual(s) responsible for stabbing a dark-brown, male pit bull in the eye with a 3-inch blade.

Witnesses say the driver of a car containing two black males, let the dog out of the vehicle, and stabbed him before driving off in what is described as a 2006 or 2007 silver Chevy Impala LX with chrome trim.

The incident occurred, according to tips provided to MHS, in the 16500 Block of Strathmoor, where the dog was later found.

MHS first learned of the ordeal on Friday morning thanks to tips to its Animal Cruelty hot-line and immediately dispatched teams to try and locate the dog. He was found that afternoon by officers of Detroit Animal Control after receiving a call about a dog hiding between two houses. 

Subsequently, the dog was humanely euthanized by Detroit Animal Control due to the severity of its injuries and its suffering.

The body was then transferred to the Michigan Humane Society’s Cruelty Investigations Department for forensic review by a staff veterinarian.

MHS is asking anyone with information to contact the Michigan Humane Society’s Cruelty Hotline at (313) 872-3401. Your anonymity will be respected.
