(Neb.)-Necropsy Determines Ike's Injuries Were Criminal In Nature
(SCOTTS BLUFF COUNTY)-A necropsy that was conducted on Ike, the three-year-old German Shepherd in Scotts Bluff County whose body had been mutilated on September 15th, has confirmed that Ike’s injuries were human caused. A veterinarian pathologist at Colorado State University examined Ike’s body after local veterinarians raised concerns that Ike’s injuries appeared to not be accidental. Ike’s owners decided to euthanize Ike after he crawled home due to the severity of his injuries. Ike had basically been filleted from his chest to his genital area.
The Humane Society of the United States is offering a $2,500 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the party responsible for the dog’s mutilation. More rewards were reported earlier as well in support of finding the perpetrator(s), and the Justice For Ike Facebook page now has over 9,300 followers. The investigation with the Scotts Bluff County Sheriff’s office is ongoing.
