KANSAS CITY, Missouri – A Kansas City woman says she saw a man dump two pit bulls into a dumpster Monday afternoon.
P.J. Ruth says when she went to look into the dumpster behind her office at 31st and Campbell when she found both dogs dead. Ruth says she’s friends with Spay and Neuter Kansas City, who says one of the dogs was beaten with a blunt object. The second dog may have died from a gunshot wound.
Michelle Rivera says Spay and Neuter Kansas City has set up a $1,000 reward leading to the capture of the man who dumped the two dogs into the dumpster.
(Updated: United Animals Nation, a California-based animal welfare agency, has donated $2,500. Earlier, a private donor pledged $3,500, bringing the total reward to $7,500)
Ruth and Rivera are also planning a vigil Thursday at 6 p.m. near the site where the dogs were found.
