A $1,000 reward is being offered for information about who might have set a dog on fire during Halloween weekend in Detroit.
Senior cruelty investigator for the Michigan Humane Society Mark Ramos tells The Oakland Press of Pontiac for a Tuesday story that someone poured gasoline on the dog and set it on fire. Ramos describes the case as "horrific."
The pit bull mix named Lady was picked up by the Michigan Humane Society on Saturday, about a week after she was burned. Ramos says the dog's owners initially thought the burns could be treated at home.
Additional details about the Michigan Humane Society's reward may be found on its website.

    I remember the Golden rule: do unto others, as you would want them to do unto you. Let the courts remember the Golden rule when punishing the perp.

    All I can say is a healthy dose of "Biblical Justice" would be in order for whoever did this!! Instead, the evil people who committed this crime will probably get a slap on the wrists and probation for buring an animal alive. Animal cruelty laws need to have a much harsher penalty attached. Stories like this make you want to cry.

    Who in their right mind thinks that it is okay to do something as horrific as this? This is certainly a sign of a twisted individual. I hope someone has the gonads to step forward with information for the Human Society. This world is becoming more cynical everyday and this is one of the fine examples. Eye for an eye? I think that is a fair punishment. People like that deserve no mercy at all. Sick, sick, sick.

    I hope they catch who ever did this and do the exact same thing to them that they did to the dog. Some people should have never been born.
