WAN’s Most Wanted: Urgent Help Needed To Identify Sub-Human Who Left A Severely Emaciated Pit Bull To Die; $3,000 Reward

 Another heartbreaking case of animal cruelty has resulted in the death of an innocent pit bull in Syracuse, New York.

The painfully emaciated dog, named Mavis, may tragically be gone but the sub-human that abhorrently abused her remains at large; and now, there is a $3,000 reward for information that results in the perpetrator’s arrest and conviction.

“It is with immense heartbreak and sadness that we let you all know Mavis passed away this morning,” Fetch A Friend Rescue, which was caring for the dog who was at an animal hospital, posted on its Facebook page yesterday. “Her extremely frail state could not handle all that occurred within the last week. She put up a good fight and is now free from her pain.”

On October 12th, Mavis had exploratory surgery after a foreign body was discovered in an ultrasound.

Cuse Pit Crew, which originally rescued Mavis and is offering the reward, also handed out flyers Sunday around Rider Avenue in Syracuse, near where the suffering pit bull was found by a Good Samaritan.

Yesterday, in an updated post on its Facebook page, Cuse Pit Crew updated Mavis’ status sharing that “Sweet Mavis passed away this morning, but we’ll continue to advocate for her. Please share.”

This sad case should also create more awareness about the tragic consequences of abuse and neglect of animals.

“So, if you see something, say something,” said Stephanie Heath, Cuse Pit Crew founder.

Anyone with information about Mavis and her former abuser, or any other tips of suspected animal abuse, should contact the Cuse Pit Crew at (315) 442-5336 or email cusepitcrew@gmail.com.
