A teen and her mother, made a grisly discovery outside of their Wisconsin home. According to a Dec. 8, report by ABC Eyewitness News 5, the Wrezzes family of Amery, were routinely checking on their four puppies. They had 3 Alaskan Huskies and 1 Chow Chow. Shocked and horrified, the family discovered that all four of the tiny animals are dead.
Kenedi Wrezzes, 15, told authorities that when she came outside, she saw her mom in tears and extremely distraught. The teen directed the police to the sidewalk location where the first puppy was found dead.
Heartbroken and not knowing what to expect next, the mother and daughter headed to the garage on the property, and found the three remaining puppies dead. The teen bravely examined each puppy for signs of claw marks.
Wrezzes told News 5, "We started flipping the puppies over and looking at them," she said. "There was no claw marks or anything, it was just, they were smashed."
The authorities are investigating and have no leads or speculative motive. Nothing was missing from the garage. This may indicate that the intention of the perpetrator was not theft, but to target the small, six-week-old animals.
As a matter public record, Wisconsin State Law indicates that intentional cruelty to an animal that results in mutilation, disfigurement or death could be subject to felony charges and carry up to a $10,000 fine and three and a half years in prison. The perpetrator(s) could face up to 4 counts, one count for each animal.
