DAVIS, Okla. – Authorities with the Humane Society of the United States is offering a reward for information related to a horrific crime.

The Humane Society says three dogs were found skinned behind a store in Davis.

On Aug. 25, police were called to the scene where the remains of three adult dogs were found in a dumpster.

“This is the worst case of animal cruelty I have ever seen,” said Clifton Kirby, an animal control officer with the Davis Police Department.

“It takes an especially depraved person to skin three dogs and then abandon their carcasses in a dumpster,” said G. Dale Fullerton, chief investigator for the Oklahoma Board of Veterinary Medical Examiners.

Now, the humane society is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to the identification, arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for the crime.

If you have any information on the case, call the Davis Police Department at (580) 369-0987.
