Humane Society Offers Reward for Information in Wichita's Fatal Dog-shooting

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A $5,000 reward is being offered for information leading to an arrest and conviction in the fatal shooting of a dog last month.  The Wichita Eagle reports that the Humane Society of America announced the reward Wednesday. Sedgwick County Sheriff's Lt. Lin Dehning says someone shot a 10-year-old female blue heeler named Pepper on May 30. The wounds were so severe that a veterinarian euthanized the dog.  Dehning says a necropsy suggested a high-velocity pellet gun was used in the shooting.  The Humane Society's Kansas state director, Midge Grinstead, called the shooting "awful" and said the "perpetrators were blatant in wanting the dog and the owners to suffer."  Anyone with information is asked to call law enforcement or Crime Stoppers.
