LOS ANGELES (AP) - People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals has offered a $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of a man who beat a small dog and left it dead on a Los Angeles sidewalk.

A witness tells investigators he saw the dog jump out of a silver Dodge Caravan May 14, followed by the minivan’s driver.

The driver, described as a white man in his 50s, chased down the dog and punched it several times. The witness says the man threw the dog to the sidewalk repeatedly until the animal was dead. The man then drove off in the van.

PETA said in a statement Wednesday that the dog endured an agonizing, terrifying death.

The LAPD’s Animal Cruelty Task Force says the suspect is about 6 feet 2 and 280 pounds with balding gray hair.
