There isn’t much information to go on, but officials with Delaware Animal Services, or DAS, say they are looking for any information about who may have shot and killed a pitbull mix in the town of Smyrna.
The dog was found dead on its owner’s front lawn early Tuesday morning. It had been missing since Saturday evening.
It was not revealed whether the dog escaped from the property or was taken. Nor was it revealed if the dog was dumped back on its owner’s property or made its way home after being shot.
In any case, the situation is being treated as a suspected animal cruelty case.
No photo of the animal was provided but officials say it was a female black pitbull mix.
Anyone with any information is asked to contact the lead investigator, Captain Reed Jones, at 302-255-4646.
