DETROIT — The Michigan Humane Society is offering a $2,500 reward after a brown and tan Rottweiler was found with its ears and nose cut off in southwest Detroit on Tuesday.

The dog was found after the humane society was contacted by a passerby who saw that it was injured. The dog also had injuries wounds on its tail and back legs, according to Fox 2 Detroit.

The Rottweiler was taken to an animal care center in Detroit to be treated for its injuries.

“It appears that someone purposely maimed this poor dog, which has caused it a great deal of suffering,” Mark Ramos, one of the humane society’s lead cruelty investigators, said in a statement on the humane society’s website.

“This kind of cruelty is unacceptable. We need to be a voice for these animals and as a community we need to speak through our strong actions to make sure this doesn’t happen again.”

Ramos added “this animal deserves justice.”
