This story breaks my heart. Our condolences to the Dunnaway Family.

Somewhere in Chilton County, Alabama, a serial killer is in training.

For the Dunnaway family, this warning came far too late. Delana Dunnaway said the family’s Chinese pug went out through the doggie door like she did every morning. This time he didn’t come back. Two-year-old Bama was found by Dunnaway’s son-in-law skinned, bleeding and still alive.

Dr. Rhonda Ellison of Calera Animal Hospital quickly determined little Bama’s egregious injuries were far too severe and the decision was made to euthanize. Ellison told the Clanton Advertiser she has never seen anything to horrific in 15 years of practice. “I could clearly see it was intentional. It was not an accident, clearly not an accident. Someone did this to her dog.”

According to Mindy Gilbert, director for the Alabama’s arm of the Humane Society of America a reward is offered for information leading to the arrest of the perpetrator. According to the amount has grown to $5,000.00.

Delana Dunnaway said she hopes the image of her pup suffering will one day leave her mind.

In the meantime, it is to be hoped parents of both the two and four legged are keeping a sharp eye on their charges. Left uncaught, the worst may yet to be for this psychopath.
