Information sought for case of shot, skinned puppy
Tuesday, Oct. 22 — A Litchfield couple found a disturbing discovery one morning — their 11-week-old bluetick puppy was found shot and skinned approximately 300 yards from their residence.
Cassandra Lutz, the dog’s owner, said the puppy had been locked up with the other dogs at 12:30 a.m. but the puppy and a pit bull had gotten out of the kennel.
According to Lutz, the pitbull started barking around 5:15-5:30 that morning and she got up and let him inside. Lutz said she and her fiancé got up about an hour later and discovered the puppy was missing, but all the other dogs were still in the kennel. They started looking for him and discovered him laying in an area with tall grass.
