Silent Witness is looking for a suspect who severely abused a puppy and left it for dead near 69th Avenue and Van Buren Street on August 23.

The dog was found in a trash bag with severe head trauma. The decision was made to euthanize the dog because the injuries were so serious.

Silent Witness says that if the puppy had gotten treatment earlier for its injuries it most likely would have survived.

Anyone with any information is asked to call Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS.
