Dog’s death in El Jebel appears to have been caused by a human
August 19, 2013
The Eagle County Sheriff's Office and the Eagle Valley Humane Society are seeking the public's help with a case involving a dog whose severed head was found in El Jebel's Crown Mountain Park earlier this month.
A Sheriff's Office news release issued Wednesday states that he injuries appear to have been caused by a human, not an animal, a view shared by two men interviewed by The Aspen Times who separately said they discovered the dog's leg and head in the park on Aug. 3 and 4.
Veterinarians who examined the head said it appears the dog was approximately 2 to 3 years old and a breed of miniature pinscher or miniature pinscher mix. Its hair was described as short and black, with brown streaks around the ears.
Anyone with information about the dog's death is urged to call the Sheriff's Office at 970-328-8500, the Humane Society at 970-280-5738 or Eagle County Crime Stoppers at 970-328-7007.
