As reported by KSDK.com, a reward of $2500.00 is being offered by the Humane Society of Missouri (HSMO) for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for burning a helpless and innocent Pit Bull named Zeus. He suffered third-degree burns over 75% of his head and 30% of his body. He was so badly injured that he had to be humanely euthanized.
According to the information available, Zeus’ guardian had originally reported that Zeus was missing from his yard. The location was between Amelia and Bircher in North St. Louis City, Mo. He was later notified by a neighbor that Zeus had shown up with these horrific burns. The HSMO Animal Cruelty Task Force was notified, and an investigation began. From all information available, Zeus was loved and well cared for prior to his disappearance.
Upon examination by the veterinary staff at the HSMO, Zeus was suffering from terrible third-degree burns. Most of the burns were on his head and face, with others on his back, hips, scrotum, and literally burning off the pad of his left paw. Zeus’ injuries were simply too severe for him to have any hope of recovery, so the heartbreaking decision was made to end his suffering.
The HSMO is asking for any information that can help find the heartless monsters who committed this horrible act of cruelty. If you have any information regarding this, please notify them at the following number:
Humane Society of Missouri Animal Cruelty Hotline 314-647-4400.
Zeus clearly suffered immensely at the hands of those who burned him, and it cost him his life. He deserves justice, and certainly someone out there has information about this terrible crime. Please circulate Zeus’ story through social media contacts to help find these monsters and bring them justice.
Rest in peace sweet Zeus. Advocates will step up now and do whatever is possible to find those who hurt you so badly.
