Four emaciated beagles, one dead and shoved in a dog food bag, were found in late November by the side of the road in Fowlerville, Mich. Authorities there are offering a $5,000 reward to anyone with information leading to an arrest and conviction in the case.
“Horrendous acts of animal cruelty will not be tolerated within our community,” said Livingston County Animal Control director Andy Seltz. “We are dedicated to preventing and ending animal cruelty in our county and our staff will remain vigilant to ensure offenders are brought to justice.”
The deceased dog was about 7 years old, according to the LCAC officers who rescued the animals. The other three dogs, while severely malnourished, were lucid enough to be playing around in a nearby field when officers arrived.
