Reward offered to find person who burned, killed Fort Lauderdale pit bull

Animal activist group PETA is offering a $2,500 reward to help find the culprit who burned a pit bull with scalding-hot liquid last month.

Two weeks ago, Craig White left his dog Blu at his Fort Lauderdale home to go to church in the evening. The next morning, he found Blu rolling in the dirt to alleviate his third-degree burns caused by hot oil or grease, according to a report by WSVN Channel 7 News. The dog died a few days later.

Police have not made any arrests in connection to the incident. PETA offered the reward for information that would lead to the arrest and conviction of the person or people responsible.

"PETA is urging anyone with any information to come forward immediately, before the sadistic culprit or culprits hurt anyone else,” said Senior Director Martin Mersereau in a news release.

Anyone with information about this case can contact Broward County Crime Stoppers at 954-493-8477.
