VIRGINIA BEACH — Animal control officers are looking for information about a Chihuahua found dead at a high school over the weekend .
On Sunday, an animal control officer found a dead eight-month-old Chihuahua with two puncture wounds in the 600 block of Orangewood Drive in Green Run, said superintendent Wayne Gilbert.
The officer learned that the dog, Neo, had escaped from its home around 5 p.m. Saturday.
The owner spent most of the day looking for him, Gilbert said.
A neighbor eventually found Neo’s body around midnight at Green Run High School. The two puncture wounds on Neo’s body were on the front of his neck and on his right side.
The incident is being investigated as a felony animal cruelty case because the wounds appear to have been caused either by stabbing or, possibly, pellet shot.
Anyone with information is asked to call Virginia Beach Crime Solvers at 1-888-LOCK-U-UP.
