Officials looking for who set Northern California puppy on fire

SACRAMENTO — Sacramento animal control officers say they are looking for anybody responsible for deliberately setting fire to a puppy that has since died.

The Sacramento Bee (http://bit.ly/UOAU5Q) reports that the 4-month-old dog was found left for dead in North Sacramento on Wednesday.

Officials say the puppy apparently had been placed in a plastic container and was set afire either on New Year's Eve or New Year's Day.

Veterinarians eventually put the dog to sleep to end its suffering.

Now, Red Rover, a Sacramento animal protection nonprofit, is offering a $2,500 reward for any information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for the abuse.
