Recently in the Puget Sound we have seen a few odd animal abuse cases, but none as disturbing as this case from Ravenna, Ohio. On March 5, 2013 the Ravenna police department found the dead body of a female pit bull in a shallow grave near the intersection of Chestnut and Hazen in Ravenna. Although its not uncommon to hear that dog has been buried by its owner some place other than a designated pet cemetery or other such area, what happened to the dog to cause its death is both uncommon and shockingly disturbing.
The dogs age has been estimated to be just a few years old and it was noted that she had recently had a litter of puppies. Humane officers in Ravenna state that they believe that the dog was strangled with a television cable and then dragged behind a vehicle for an unknown amount of time or distance. This horrific crime causes far more questions than it currently has answers and its disturbing nature has the police, humane officers, and residents very worried. Chalan Lowry with the Portage APL told FOX 8, "When I think about the fact that this person might have children, might have a wife, might have a family, other pets, like who would do that? It boggles my mind."
Anyone who has any information about this horrific and tragic crime is asked to call the Portage APL right away. Its possible that the lives of other animals or even people could be at risk. Currently there is no additional information on this frightening crime.
