The Ohio SPCA, along with Pound Bound and Found, a Ross County dog rescue group, is offering a reward of $1,000 for information on the person responsible for shooting a dog found near a wildlife area.

The SPCA said it took the body of the black and white pit bull, now named Jane, to Columbus for testing after it was thought that she froze to death, but testing proved that she died from a bullet would that penetrated her lung and heart. The necropsy also showed blunt force trauma to her abdomen.

A local resident had discovered the six to nine month old pit bull, and her cage, and had posted photos on facebook. The photos were not published due to the graphic nature of them.

Teresa Landon, executive director of the Ohio SPCA, believes that Jane was physically abused prior to being shot and killed and that she was alive inside the cage when she was shot, but broke out before making a few feet and dying. The cage was tainted with garbage and feces.

Please come forward if you know who did this to this poor dog. She deserved better than the harsh treatment she got.
