PARSONS, Kan. – The Parsons Police Department is offering a $1,000 reward for the arrest of whoever decapitated a Parsons Police Officer’s dog.

The Parsons Public Information officer says the dog, Ranger, was let outside in a fenced back yard around 7 this morning.

At around 2 pm the owner found the black 3-month-old puppy lying in the yard with its head severed.

Parsons Police Chief Robert Spinks said, “The level of cowardice that would lead someone to kill a little puppy named ‘Ranger’ is astonishing. I pray that we get a chance for the judicial system to prosecute this coward and bring them to justice.”

Police say knowingly and maliciously killing an animal is a felony.

Additionally, charges for criminal trespass would also be added.
