ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - The carcass of a pit bull found hanging from a tree in wooded area of Anchorage has spawned an animal cruelty case for Anchorage police.

The department says it’s seeking the public’s help in finding the person who slashed the dog’s throat and hung it in woods near east 20th Avenue and Rosemary Street in east Anchorage.

A man walking in the woods spotted the dead dog Oct. 10.

The dog’s ear contained a microchip.

KTUU-TV (https://bit.ly/ZLU29H) reports police contacted the owner, who said family members thought their dog, Snoop, had simply run away.

The family lives the Penland Mobile Home Park about a mile from where the dog was found.
