Would you please consider sharing this information? It may be the only hope for an arrest in this case.

“This little dog suffered the terror and agony of being staked to the sand and drowning in the rising ocean waters,” says PETA Senior Director Colleen O’Brien. “PETA urges anyone with information about this crime to come forward immediately, before whoever is responsible for this animal’s horrifying death hurts someone else.”

PETA advises guardians to keep their animal companions safely indoors and never leave them unattended outside, where they may be stolen or hurt by cruel people. Dogs should always be accompanied in the backyard and escorted on walks on a comfortable, secure harness and leash.

Anyone with information about this case is encouraged to call the County of Los Angeles Department of Animal Care and Control at 562-728-4572.
