RAVENNA, Ohio- The Portage Animal Protective League is trying to get to the bottom of a disturbing discovery.

Tuesday night, police found the body of a dog, left in a shallow grave, near Chestnut and Hazen Rd. in Ravenna.

Humane officers believe the pit bull had been strangled with a TV cable, then dragged behind a vehicle.

They think the dog was no more than a couple of years old and had given birth to at least one litter of puppies recently.

Chalan Lowry with the Portage APL told FOX 8, “When I think about the fact that this person might have children, might have a wife, might have a family, other pets, like who would do that? It boggles my mind.”

Anyone who has information about the horrific crime is asked to call the Portage APL.
