German shepherd found bleeding to death on San Diego street after being stabbed 50 times
Authorities are investigating the case of a German shepherd who was stabbed more than 50 times in the abdomen, chest and throat before being found bleeding to death in the Point Loma neighborhood Saturday.
San Diego County animal services officers are looking for witnesses or information that could lead to an arrest in the death of the 9-month-old dog.
Two private groups are offering a $4,500 reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction.
"Whoever is responsible for this despicable crime needs to be found and held accountable," said Dawn Danielson, director of the Department of Animal Services.
The reward is being offered by San Diego Animal Advocates and In Defense of Animals. Anyone with information is encouraged to call Lt. Dan DeSousa at (619) 823-4959.
