Reward offered to help find person who burned puppyPosted: Updated:
The Humane Society of the United States and an animal welfare group are offering a reward to help track down the person responsible for burning a puppy.
Bugle Boy, the name given to the 3-month-old beagle, was picked up by Paterson Animal Control near Getty Avenue on Monday. A woman had called to report the dog, who was found with bad burns possibly from hot oil or a chemical.
Chief Animal Control Officer John Decando says Bugle Boy?s case is one of the worst he?s seen. He said the hair on the puppy was burned down to his skin.
Bugle Boy is now in the care of a member of Save the Animal Rescue Team.
There is a $5,000 reward for any information leading to an arrest and conviction in the case.
