Elk Grove police seek information regarding a dog that was found badly burned two weeks ago and the person responsible for the injuries.
The Police Department’s Animal Control Unit responded to the area of Elk Grove Florin Road and Elk Grove Boulevard on Dec. 21 regarding a stray dog that had been contained. The 2-year-old female terrier mix was found to have severe burns over 50 percent of her body, police spokesman Officer Christopher Trim said in a email.
The infected wounds will require extensive treatment and care, but despite her injuries, “this little girl is very loving and kind to all her caregivers,” Trim said.
Anyone with information about the dog or the circumstances surrounding her injuries is asked to call Elk Grove Animal Control at (916) 687-3042.
Call The Bee’s Cathy Locke, (916) 321-5287.
