BELLINGHAM — The Whatcom Humane Society is hoping a $5,000 reward will lead to the discovery of who was responsible for the torture and beating of two puppies, including one that died.
The 5-month-old shepherd mixes were found April 1 by a driver on the Lummi Indian Reservation. The surviving puppy is in critical condition at a Bellingham veterinary clinic.
Whatcom Humane Society Director Laura Clark said the person or persons responsible could face a first-degree animal cruelty charge, which is a Class C felony.
