Two Pit Bulls Killed In Lynnwood Yard

July 27, 2006

By Associated Press

LYNNWOOD - A dog owner who said he awoke early Thursday to the sounds of his two pit bulls barking found them hanged by their necks with a rope over his backyard fence, Lynnwood police said.

It was the second Lynnwood animal cruelty case involving pit bulls in the past month.

The man found one dog limp and the other struggling, police spokeswoman Shannon Sessions said in a statement.

The dog owner, who was not identified, said he tried to help the struggling dog but it bit him in its panic. He ran back inside to get something to cut the rope and when he returned both dogs were dead.

Killed were Peanut, a 1-year-old male, and Wiggles, a 10-month-old female.

The case is under investigation.

On June 28, a young pit bull was hurt and dumped in a trash bin at the Woodland Park Apartments. A passer-by heard the dog and it was rescued, treated at an animal hospital and has been released to a foster home.

Lynnwood police said it's too soon to know if the cases are connected but that possibility is under investigation.

A total reward of $5,000 has been offered for the arrest and conviction of those responsible for the June 28 case.

Police search for pit bull killer

Deborah Feldman reports

LYNNWOOD, Wash. – Police are searching for someone who brutally killed two pit bulls Thursday by hanging them over a fence.

The dogs' owner woke at 2 a.m. Thursday to the sound of his dogs barking, followed by the sound of struggle and then yelping.

When he got outside, he found the two dogs hanging by their necks, one limp and other struggling. The struggling one bit him as he tried to help so he ran inside to get something to cut them down. But by the time he got back, they were both dead.

The dogs were both relative puppies. Peanut was a one-year-old male and Wiggles was a 10-month-old female.

The dogs' owner said they were both friendly.

Police have no suspects in the case but are looking into whether it is connected to an animal cruelty case June 28 when a dog was hurt and dumped in a Dumpster at the Woodland Park Apartments.

That dog has recovered and has since been released to an animal foster home.

Animal advocacy group Pasado's Safe Haven and the Humane Society are each offering a reward for information leading to an arrest in Thursday's attack. The rewards together total $5,000.
