Two adult pit bull dogs were found dead hanging from a tree along Highway 36 near Dinsmore in northern California on May 19, and the Humboldt County Sheriff's Office is seeking the assistance of the public to help find the culprits of such egregious animal cruelty reported the press release on Wednesday.

The dogs were found by a state transportation worker; the animals had apparently been shot in the head and were discovered hanging by their back legs.

A large spray painted wooden sign was found near the dogs. It read, "All stray dogs must die."

One of the dogs was white and the other dog was brindle.

If you have any information about this heinous crime, please call the Humboldt County Sheriff's Office at (707)-445-7251.
