All I can say is thank God the Eagle County Sheriff's Office & Bureau of Animal Protection Agents from the Eagle Valley Humane Society are taking this case of a decapitated dog SERIOUSLY!

In case you missed it the story (like I wish I would have), early this month a resident reported a gruesome find in an El Jebel Park including the head and leg of a dog which had been severed from it's body. Authorities were able to determine that the dog had been a 2 to 3 year old miniature pinscher mix & that it's injuries had been caused by a human and NOT an animal . . .

I can't even begin to tell you how much this disturbs me! Not only as a pet owner but also as a mother and a citizen of Western Colorado!

Waylon was so effected by the story he couldn't even LOOK at it!

I truly believe that violence like this will grow into violence against HUMANS and the best thing you could do IF you know ANYTHING is turn the criminal in . . .
