MILWAUKEE (WITI) — The Humane Society of the United States is offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to the identification, arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for beating and stabbing to death a family’s pet.

According to a press release, witnesses reported reported seeing two men beating a puppy name Capone on Thursday, March 21st. The puppy was also stabbed, and a trail of bloody paw prints led to a neighbor’s home where it is believed the dog ran to find shelter.

Capone was rushed to the veterinarian for emergency surgery, but he bled to death before he could be saved.

“This brutal attack and the violent death that this puppy suffered is heartbreaking and of great concern,” said Alyson Bodai, The HSUS’ Wisconsin state director. “We hope our reward helps find the person or persons who committed this violent act.”

Police Department is investigating. Anyone with information about the case is asked to call Milwaukee Police Department’s District 2, at (414) 935-7222.
