The reward for information on who burned a dog that was found last month is higher.
Zeus was a pit bull. He was found with third-degree burns on over three-quarters of his body. Veterinarians determined his injuries were so severe that they were forced to euthanize him. The Humane Society has increased the reward from $2,500 to $5,000 for information that leads to an arrest. Zeus' owner reported the dog missing from his Jennings home. Authorities found the dog badly burned in a neighbor's back yard.
Earlier this summer, a St. Louis woman was charged with felony animal abuse for setting a dog on fire and bragging about it on Facebook. That dog also died.
