FREEPORT, Grand Bahama -- On Wednesday morning, a "Good Samaritan" came into the Humane Society of Grand Bahama shelter. Visibly shaken, he reported that he had just seen two dogs he surmised had been dumped on a track road in a wooded area off West Beach Road. He said one of the dogs was dead, but the other was still alive but in very poor condition.
Two HSGB Field Officers followed the gentleman to the site. The living dog, an emaciated female pit bull/boxer mix, was curled up next to her dead companion. When she saw the van approaching she got up and tried to run, but was so weak she stumbled and staggered and they were able to secure her. They then took a closer look at the dead dog, a large male pit bull/bulldog mix, and to their horror, discovered the dog had been decapitated.
The HSGB contacted the Royal Bahamas Police Force, who are investigating this act of apparent extreme animal cruelty.
The HSGB is offering a reward for information leading to the owner of these dogs and any other information concerning this incident which would result in a resolution regarding the police investigation. Callers may remain anonymous and can call either the police at 911 or the Humane Society at 352-2477.
