Reward Offered For Information on Injured Dog

Sammie’s Friends is offering a $500 dollar reward for anyone willing to step forward with information leading to the capture of a person that may have intentionally dragged their Pit Bull behind a vehicle.
A  Blue/White Pit Bull was found lying by the Bear River Bridge Tuesday, September 25. One of Sammie’s Friends founders, Cheryl Wick, say the dog was in bad shape when Animal Control transported him to Mother Lode Veterinary Hospital.

Injuries were sever enough that the dog was put under anesthesia to be examined and road material removed from wounds.
It is unclear if the act was intentional or not. Wick says it is not uncommon for dogs to get injured when not properly restrained in vehicles.

Lately in the police blotter there are increasing incidents of reports of dogs being beaten by their owners.

I find this greatly disturbing and would like to know what is being done about this, if anything.
