The San Diego Humane Society (SDHS) is looking for the suspect responsible for shooting and killing a two-year-old female pit bull last month in El Cajon.
According to the SDHS, the dog was fatally shot in early February in the 500 block of Millar Avenue. Officials said a resident in the area had heard gunfire and saw the dog collapse. When police arrived, they found the dog dead at the scene.
The person responsible for killing the dog and the dog’s owner have not been located.
SDHS and SPCA director of Humane Law Enforcement Randy Lawrence said the dog “had no collar, but appeared well cared for.”
Investigators say the dog is a medium-sized, tan and white female pit bull mix.
Lawrence says SDHS investigators are now working with the El Cajon Police Department to find the shooting suspect and dog’s owner. Officials are asking anyone with information on this case to contact the SDHS at (619) 243-3466 or Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477.
A $1,000 reward is being offered by Crime Stoppers for any information that leads to an arrest in this case of animal cruelty.
