Animal Control Investigating Two Dog Abuse Cases

Posted:
LANSING MICH. (WLNS) -

Police are investigating two animal abuse cases tonight, both in Lansing. In one case, someone hung a dog and stabbed it to death on Illinois Ave.

"It's very shocking even for an experienced animal cruelty investigator, this is a hard case to investigate," said Kyle Hanney, deputy from the Ingham County Animal Control.

It happened one week ago in broad daylight.

"We believe that the suspects are two white males," said Hanney. "We have some witnesses to the accounts, we however are looking for more witnesses to come forward at this time."

Another pit bull was found just yesterday dumped on Ruth Ave. She later died.

"But we are still looking for who that person is that would've dumped this small female pit bull back in color with white on the chest," said Jamie McAloon Lampman, director at the Ingham County Animal Control.

The reward is now up the 2,300 dollars for any information leading up to the person or people who did this. The Ingham County animal control is hoping the reward will encourage people to step forward.

"When people see things that don't seem right to them or if they suspect animal abuse, any abuse going on, call the authorities," said McAloon Lampman.

Animal abuse is a felony in Michigan. The Ingham County Animal Control is receiving more tips by the day for the pit bull that was stabbed.

If you have any information you are asked to call the tip line at (517) 676-8376.
