DETROIT — The Michigan Humane Society is offering a $2,500 reward after a brown and tan Rottweiler was found with its ears and nose cut off in southwest Detroit on Tuesday.
The dog was found after the humane society was contacted by someone who saw that it was injured. The dog also had injuries wounds on its tail and back legs, according to Fox 2 Detroit.
The Rottweiler was taken to an animal care center in Detroit to be treated for its injuries.
“It appears that someone purposely maimed this poor dog, which has caused it a great deal of suffering,” Mark Ramos, one of the humane society’s lead cruelty investigators, said in a statement on the humane society’s website.
“This kind of cruelty is unacceptable. We need to be a voice for these animals and as a community we need to speak through our strong actions to make sure this doesn’t happen again.”
Ramos added “this animal deserves justice.”
