PARSONS, Kan. – There is troubling story from Parsons, Kansas about an act of animal cruelty.
In a news release, a spokesman for the Parsons Police Department said Friday a dog named Ranger, owned by a Parsons Police Officer, was decapitated.
As a result, the Parsons P.D. is offering a $1,000 reward leading to the arrest of the person or persons involved.
The dog was only 3 months old. He was allowed to go outside early in the morning but was found dead when the officer returned home early in the afternoon on Friday.
The puppy’s head had been severed.
Parsons Police Chief Robert Spinks said an act of knowingly and maliciously killing a puppy is a felony offense. He added that person(s) involved could also be charged with criminal trespass.
Chief Spinks said the level of cowardice that would lead someone to kill the puppy is “astonishing.”
