VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (AP) - A private group is offering a $20,000 reward for anyone with information about the killing of a dog that was found at the scene of a brush fire with its legs bound.

The Virginian-Pilot (http://bit.ly/1HMhWAY) reports animal control officers found the dead dog at the scene of a brush fire May 29. Police said Monday the dog, believed to be a pit bull type, was still alive when the fire was set.

In a police news release, the account offering the reward is privately maintained by the Friends of Virginia Beach Animal Care and Adoption Center. It’s funded by a number of people who have joined forces with the Humane Society and People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals.

The case remains under investigation.
