Officials are looking for a person who cut a dog's throat in Chandler.

Chandler police said officers responded to the area of McQueen and Warner roads on September 18 for a report of an injured dog.

When officers arrived on the scene, they found a 3-year-old dog named Panda with a severe laceration to her throat. 

Panda was turned over to the Arizona Humane Society for treatment and is recovering from surgery. 

According to police, Panda was recently re-homed to an unknown person. Panda’s previous owners gave her to an unknown Hispanic man at Espee Park earlier in the month.  

Investigators believe Panda’s injuries were intentional.

If you have any information regarding this case call Chandler police at 480-782-4130 or Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS. A reward of up to $2,000 is being offered for information that leads to an arrest.
