The Williston Police Department calls it an act of cowardice.
Thursday while destroying evidence, per a judge’s order, police officers and personnel heard a whimpering sound.
Following the noise, they soon discovered a puppy, whose eyes are not yet open, buried alive in a shallow grave.
The officers immediately took the puppy to a local veterinarian where it was examined, cleaned up and adopted.
As word reached Willistonians’ ears by nightfall, the Myree family had pledged $100 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the perpetrator(s).
Today, the police department said a resident of South Florida is offering $500 for information that leads to an arrest and conviction.
