BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - Boulder police are investigating after a woman’s service dog was found beaten to death and skinned in a park shortly after it went missing from her front yard.

Betsy Imig tells The Daily Camera (https://goo.gl/eJoR5f ) she let her white Maltese named Dr. PB out the morning of Sept. 26, and the dog ran away when she turned her back for a moment. Animal control officers found the 10-pound dog dead a few hours later.

A necropsy revealed the dog died from blunt-force trauma to the abdomen, and about 60 percent of its body was skinned. Animal control supervisor Janee Boswell says the necropsy determined that the skinning was done by a human and not another animal, and the dog was not hit by a car.
