Reward offered in Cass Lake, Minnesota, for information leading to arrest in fatal dog stabbing case

Dec. 20, 2019— The Humane Society of the United States is offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to the identification, arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for the fatal dog stabbing that occurred in Cass Lake, Minnesota.

The Case: On December 6, Leech Lake Tribal Police Officers were dispatched to the Allen’s Bay Housing area of rural Cass Lake, Minnesota, after receiving a report of a dog bleeding from multiple wounds. A trail of blood was located which led the officers to a medium-sized light brown dog lying in the snow. Officers wrapped the wounded dog in a blanket and contacted a local veterinarian. The dog died as a result of the injuries before arriving at a veterinary clinic. Officers evaluated the dog and determined that the animal had sustained multiple stab wounds to the head, neck and body.

The Investigators: The Leech Lake Tribal Police are investigating the case. Anyone with relevant information should contact Investigations at Leech Lake Tribal Police: 218-335-8277.

Resources: The Humane Society of the United States’ Animal Cruelty campaign raises public awareness and educates communities about the connection between animal cruelty and human violence while providing a variety of resources and support to law enforcement agencies, social work professionals, educators, legislators and families. We offer rewards in animal cruelty cases across the country and works to strengthen laws against animal cruelty.

The Humane Society of the United States has doubled its standard cruelty reward from $2,500 to $5,000 thanks to a generous donation from a board member.
