The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) is offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to the identification, arrest and conviction of the person that stabbed and brutally beat a dog in Michigan.

The dog was found in Bay County, Michigan. The Bay County Animal Shelter shared the following information via email, “On Tuesday, Dec. 15, a local animal shelter volunteer found a white pit bull-type male dog on the side of the road. The dog appeared to have been attacked. The dog was immediately transported to a veterinarian who discovered he had multiple stab wounds—both fresh and old wounds—all over his body. The dog, named “Tank” by the shelter, required multiple surgeries and extensive treatment. Tank is now continuing his recovery in a foster home.”

Bay County Animal Services is currently investigating the case and searching for the person that committed this crime. “No animal should have to endure the injuries that this dog was subjected to. The investigation is ongoing and we need the public’s help to identify the person who did this so we can help ensure that this doesn’t happen again,” said Craig Goulet of Bay County Animal Services in an emailed statement.

Animal rights activists are appalled at Tank’s treatment. “The egregious and intentional violence inflicted on this animal is unconscionable. We are hopeful that this reward encourages anyone with information about this terrible crime to come forward so that the abuser can be brought to justice,” said Molly Tamulevich, Michigan state director for the Humane Society of the United States.

If you have news about this crime, please call Bay County Animal Services at 989-894-0679.
