Two missing dogs found in Iowa shot in the head

The Cass County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the case of two dogs found dead in the Cumberland countryside on Tuesday. The dead were found near a bridge at 660th Street, near Tucson Road, the mayor’s office reported, and officials said the dogs’ hind legs were tied and they were shot in the head. Pitbull, and Pepper, a 3-year-old black Lab, have been missing since July 27. “Bella loved to cuddle—that was her biggest thing,” said Logan Lank, her owner. “Pepper was really good. Obedient. Kind of like Bella’s sister.” Lank and his girlfriend have created a grave site for Bella and Bieber. “All we had were these bricks and we tried to carve their names out for now,” Lank said they are desperate to find out what happened to their dogs after they went missing. “The community has been a huge help,” Lank said. “They were all looking. We had people from everywhere looking for them.” A hopeful search ended in pain on Tuesday, Lank said, “They were found with their legs bound, shot in the back of the head, and thrown over the bridge,” and the bridge was only two miles from Logan’s home. “We’re not going to get rid of a dog like this without the law getting in,” said McLaren, Cass County Sheriff Darby McLaren. And McLaren says anyone who did so could face charges of animal cruelty. He believes, based on the photos, that Bella and Bieber were killed around July 27. “At the moment, we think this is a random act. I don’t think anyone is walking around shooting stray dogs,” McClaren said. To find out who did this to bring justice to his dogs. “I just want them to know how brutal and inhuman they are,” Lank said. “But I thought they should already know that doing something like that.” What gives Lank a sense of calm after losing his dogs is knowing that they were together until the end. “It brings peace to my heart that they are not parted. It’s still hard, either way,” Logan said the community donated money for any information that would lead to an arrest, and the mayor’s office continues to investigate. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Cass County Sheriff’s Office at 712-243-2206.
