$2,500 Reward

Two Dogs Left To Die In Woods

March 25, 2015

DETROIT – The Michigan Humane Society (MHS) and Ingham County Animal Control are offering a $2,500 combined reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the individual(s) responsible for tying two dogs to a tree and leaving them to die in the woods near the 500-600 block of East Dexter Trail within the Hewes Lake DNR Reserve near Dansville, MI.

A local citizen contacted Ingham County Animal Control on Monday, March 23 after making the gruesome discovery the day before.

A criminal investigation is being conducted by the Ingham County Animal Control to find out who is responsible for the horrific act. Officials estimate that the two dogs had been tied to the tree for two months before the remains were found. The dogs were left without water or food and tethered to the tree with a short leash.

“The Michigan Humane Society is committed to working alongside Ingham County Animal Control to ensure the individuals responsible for this horrible and senseless act are held accountable for their actions,” said Matthew Pepper, President and CEO of the Michigan Humane Society. “Animal Cruelty isn’t limited to one city, one county, or one community.  MHS is dedicated to protecting the animals across the entire State of Michigan.  Too often violence is targeted at animals and pets and we must be the voice for these victims.  Violence against humans and animals is a threat to our community, and this act of incredible cruelty cannot be tolerated.” 

The Ingham County Animal Control and Shelter are asking anyone with information about this incident to contact them on their anonymous tip line at 517-676-8370.
