Dogs Tortured, One Killed at Bartholomew County Home
Residents of a home in the 600 block of Della Road in Bartholomew County returned home to a horrible scene Friday morning. Major Todd Noblitt with the Bartholomew County Sheriff's Department says the residents' two small dogs were tortured.
Noblitt says the dogs, described as Maltese-Dachsund mixes, were inside the fenced-in yard surrounding the home. One of the dogs was gutted and killed, while the second one had a severe wound on it's body where it's internal organs were visible. That dog is expected to survive after being rushed to an area animal hospital.
A third dog, described as a "fluffy white puppy," was missing. Investigators believe it was taken by whoever was responsible for torturing the other dogs.
