PSPCA seeks killer of dismembered dog

The Pennsylvania SPCA wants to know who chopped up a large dog and left it on a woman's porch in northeast Philadelphia last night.

Officers were called to a grisly scene last night on the 200 blick of Byberry Rd. in the Somerton section where a woman found the head and paws of a husky dog on her porch.

PSPCA officials told the Daily News it appeared as if the dog had been sawed in half.

Other news reports say the woman thinks it may be the work of a someone with whom she had a dispute. The dog's owners, who have been identified, live three miles away and are not suspects, the PSPCA said. They said they let the dog out for a walk on Sunday and it disappeared.

The PSPCA is issuing a $1,000 reward for information leading to a conviction in this
case. Tips can be made 24 hours a day by calling the PSPCA’s anti-cruelty hotline at 866.601.SPCA (7722).

The body of the dog was taken to the  PSPCA headquarters for forensic examination.
