The last time Michael Cadenhead saw his two dogs alive was when they ran after a deer.

According to KRQE News 13, Cadenhead's two Doberman Pinschers - one of which was pregnant - went missing on Nov. 15 in Capitan, New Mexico, about three hours from Albuquerque.

A few weeks later, a hunter found the bodies of dogs outside of town. Cadenhead took the dogs to the vet for a necropsy, where he learned the dogs were dragged to death from behind a vehicle.

Since the dogs were found, the Lincoln County Sheriff's Office has been searching for the killer, and on Tuesday, Dec. 5, the animal rights group PETA offered their help, and a sizable reward.

Kristin Rickman with the Cruelty Investigations Department at PETA said:

"PETA is offering a reward for up to $5,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of cruelty to animals charges, of whoever is responsible for the death of two dogs, who were apparently dragged until their necks were broken."


PETA claims that the person responsible for committing this kind of animal cruelty is not just a danger to animals and needs to be put behind bars.

Rickman said:

"Cruelty to animals is an indicator of a deep disturbance. People who abuse animals rarely do so only once. All our nation's serial killers started off by harming animals."

If you have any information, you can contact the Lincoln County Sheriff's Department at 575-648-2341.

Would you be able to forgive the person or persons responsible for this horrific act if these were your dogs? Let us know in the comments.
