LOVELAND, Colo. (AP) - Reports of two skinned dogs found near Loveland are under investigation by law enforcement and the Larimer Humane Society.
The Reporter-Herald says the first dog was anonymously reported to the Humane Society last week. The dog had been skinned, beheaded and had its tail removed.
The second dog was reported by an anonymous caller on Saturday. That skinned animal was found lying on snow in a grassy area in southwest Loveland. Authorities are still investigating the second case to make certain it's a dog.
Skinning a dog is considered aggravated cruelty and is a felony.
