June 1, 2015

Silverdale, WA –Anyone with information about a dog found shot to death Monday on a trail in the Seabeck area is asked to contact Kitsap Humane Society Animal Control. Lead Animal Control Officer Chase Connolly said he is interested in any information about the dog, an approximately  5- to 8-year-old intact male pit bull mix, fawn (silvery tan) in color.

Connolly said the dog was found around 3 p.m. by two hikers and their dogs about 50 yards in on a trail off Stavis Bay Road. The trail head is directly across from Cadmar Lane.  The dog was wearing a blue harness and was tied to the tree by a pink leash.  It had been shot in the forehead, Connolly said.

Officers brought the dog’s body to Kitsap Humane Society, where it will be examined by the shelter’s veterinarian. Connolly can be contacted at (360) 692-6977, ext. 1208 or via 911 to make an official report.
