Details on necropsy report released for dogs found dead on side of road


LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) – Earlier this week, Little Rock police said they were investigating an animal cruelty case after two dogs were found dead on the side of the road.

The dogs, Stella and Tao, had disappeared Sunday morning and were found on Cantrell Road the same evening.

The officer narrative in the police report detailed that one dog had what appeared to be a severely broken jaw, and a possible gunshot wound to the abdomen area, while the other dog appeared as if she had been shot in the head.

On Thursday, THV11 received information from Lt. Sidney Allen that a necropsy report found no evidence of gunshot wounds. He said the injuries they suffered appeared to be consistent with those expected from being struck by a car.
