HAYSVILLE, Kan. (KSNW) – The Sedgwick County Sheriff’s Department is investigating a case of animal cruelty. It happened Sunday night.
The dog is named Blue. The owner, Angela Monjaras, posted on Facebook about Blue missing. A neighbor called the owner who saw the dog laying in a ditch near 95th South and Hillside. Monjaras said the dog was dragged and shot. She contacted authorities.
A deputy said the dog was shot multiple times. There are no suspects at this time. Anyone with information is asked to call 316-660-5300.
Angela Monjaras says Blue would have turned two in November.
She says the family was shocked to hear Sunday from a neighbor that their beloved dog was dead.
The blue nosed pit bull Monjaras and her family adored went missing Thursday to sadly never return home.
“She was the most beautiful dog you know,” said Angela Monjaras, Haysville.
A teary eyed Monjaras described the almost two-year old dog as caring and big-hearted. She says after she went missing with their other dog, the family never expected how she would later be found.
“She had a burn on her foot from like a lasso or something and her fur was coming off where the rope was pulling on her fur,” said Monjaras.
And with multiple gunshot wounds, confirmed earlier Monday by the Sedgwick County Sheriff’s Department.
Monjaras says Blue was protective but she’s not sure if that’s why her dog was killed.
“She was protective but I’m not sure if the person who did this had something against pit bulls,” said Monjaras.
Thankfully their other companion returned home, but without her friend. Monjaras says they’re thankful they have some closure, but wants to let the person or persons who did this know how they’re feeling.
“I want them to know that we’re heartbroken that this hurts us a lot,” said Monjaras.
