— TULSA (AP) — Authorities in northeast Oklahoma are trying to figure out who tied a dog to a vehicle and dragged it to death last weekend.
Rogers County Sheriff Scott Walton told the Tulsa World that someone tied the Labrador retriever's legs with wire and dragged her with a vehicle for a little more than a mile before stopping on Saturday.
Walton said a trail of "flesh and fur" was left behind on a road in Winganon.
The dog's owner, Melony Patton, said she was shocked that someone would savagely kill her 2-year-old dog, Jetta.
She said Jetta gave birth to nine puppies a month ago and didn't have a history of violence.
A $4,500 reward is being offered for information that leads to an arrest.
