CLEVELAND HEIGHTS – A mastiff treated in the most inhumane of ways is recovering as dedicated individuals and organizations are working to deliver justice and help him heal.

The Humane Society of the United States announced on Thursday a reward up to $2,500 is being offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or people who shot the dog multiple times and left him chained to a tree.

Forest, as he’s been named, was found on a back trail in Forest Hill Park last Monday afternoon.

One bullet was still lodged in the dog’s chest muscle when he was taken to the vet.

Forest is now in the care of a PAWS foster family and is getting stronger and healthier.

Anyone with information on what happened to Forest is urged to call the Cleveland Heights Police Department at (216) 321-1234.
