This story is one that would break any dog lover's heart and our thoughts and prayers are with the Parsons Police Department.
The puppy in question, a three month old black German Shepherd named Ranger, had been let out into the backyard around 7AM by his handler. Later that day, the off-duty Police Officer found the lifeless puppy with it's head severed.
An investigation revealed the the dog had been slain somewhere else before being tossed back into the Police Officers yard. This appears to be a targeted attack against the puppy's handler.
“I cannot even describe my feelings of disdain for the person(s) responsible,” the outraged chief wrote in the press release. “I am an avid dog lover as I have made it clear to the community over the years that I have been here, I have 2 rescue dogs, one that I adopted from our local shelter. The level of cowardice that would lead someone to kill a little puppy named ‘Ranger’ is astonishing.”Source
We support the Parsons Police Department in the ongoing investigation and hope the perpetrator is apprehended and brought to justice.
