The initial examination led many to believe a person cut Chica’s throat, broke her back, skinned her and left her for dead in the road near their Northland home at Brighton and Vivion Road.

Chica’s owner, Danielle Carter, told FOX 4 that she does not believe that her dog was killed by another animal.

A reward for $1,500 was offered for information leading to the arrest and prosecution of the individual(s) responsible.
