Reward Rises in KC Case of Slain Puppies
KANSAS CITY (AP) - The reward is up to $7,500 in the search for a man who left the bodies of two abused puppies in a midtown Kansas City trash bin. A woman discovered the young dogs, described as pit bulls, earlier this week after seeing the man place two dog food bags containing the bodies in the trash.
The woman says both were terribly malnourished, one had been shot and the other smashed with a blunt object. A private donor has pledged $3,500 to anyone providing information that leads to an arrest and conviction. The group Spay & Neuter Kansas City has offered $1,500, and the California-based nonprofit United Animal Nations has now contributed $2,500 to the reward fund.
A memorial gathering for the dead pups was scheduled Thursday evening at the spot where they were dumped.
