SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- (KRON) -- Neighbors along Riverside Boulevard south of Land Park were horrified when a 4-month-old puppy was found beaten, shot with a BB gun and hanging from a tree last week.
“It’s a horrific case. It’s probably the worst one I’ve seen since I’ve been here working for the city,” Chief Animal Control Officer Jase Huggins said.
Last Friday, a passerby made the gruesome walking along the bike path near Riverside and Rio Viale Court.
“From nose to tail, there wasn’t any part of this puppy — about a 4-month-old puppy — that didn’t have fractures somewhere on her body,” Huggins said.
Now, neighbors desperately want whoever is responsible to be brought to justice.
“I’m watching everything all the time when I’m down here cause you never know when they’re gonna come out,” neighbor Steven Beard said.
