According to Monday's Whittier Daily News, a severely burned puppy, who was found late last week in Ontario, Calif., died after being set on fire.

The five-month-old Australian cattle dog was discovered last Thursday around 10 p.m. in the 1100 block of La Deney Ct. A resident in the area heard the puppy's cries and witnessed the burning puppy running in the area. The resident phoned the police, who responded and discovered that the puppy had suffered severe burns over much of its body.

The grievously wounded pup was transported to veterinarians at the Inland Valley Humane Society & SPCA , who attempted to treat the puppy's massive burns, but the devastating injuries proved to be fatal.

Officials with the Humane Society believe that the puppy was intentionally harmed and they are seeking information into the apparent act of animal cruelty. Anyone with information is asked to call: 909-623-9777
