GRAPHIC: Reward for info upped to $7,500 after dog fatally shot with arrow
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The reward for information on the person responsible for fatally wounding a dog with an arrow has increased once again.
The Humane Society of the United States has added $5,000 to a reward that was initially offered by the Arrow Fund and FOMAS Louisville. The full reward now stands at $7,500.
The Jack Russell died after being found in Fairdale in late June on Brown Austin Road near New Cut Road.
Louisville Metro Animal Services says the dog had a two-foot-long arrow sticking out of his left hip area. LMAS says police have received a number of tips, but have not been able to locate the person who abused the dog.
LMAS believes the owner of the dog has not come forward due to fear of facing charges. Officials say they are more interested in identifying the owner than charging or citing the person.
Animal Services wants to determine whether the dog lived in the area or was dumped in the neighborhood.
Officials are also asking any one who may have witnessed the offense to call police.
