NEWS LINK: http://www.examiner.com/article/reward-offered-for-information-on-fatal-puppy-burning-case-sacramento On New Year's Eve, or New Year's day, someone intentionally set fire to a puppy in Sacramento, Calif. On Friday, RedRover, a nonprofit animal protection organization, announced that a $2,500 reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of whoever is responsible for cruel act. The female, four-month-old puppy was discovered near Calvados Ave. and Oakmont St., near Del Paso Blvd. and Arden Way. It appeared that the puppy had been confined in a red plastic container and doused with accelerant before being set aflame. The fire left the puppy with severe burns over her entire body and bits of the plastic container had melted into her feet and hindquarters. Though animal control rushed her to a veterinarian, the puppy's injuries were so severe that humane euthanasia was deemed necessary. Anyone with tips or information is asked to phone: Officer Dan Torres at 916.808.5855.
