EAGLE, Colo. (AP) – Authorities in Colorado say a dog whose severed head was found at a park appears to have been injured by a human, not an animal.
The decapitation was reported Aug. 4 in El Jebel (jeh-BELL’), northwest of Aspen and about 175 miles west of Denver.
Eagle County sheriff’s officials said Wednesday that it appears a human caused the dog’s injuries. They say an examination by veterinarians suggests the dog might have been about 2 to 3 years old and a breed of miniature pinscher or miniature pinscher mix.
Crime Stoppers is offering a reward of up to $1,000 for information leading to an arrest and indictment.
