A lifeless puppy was found hanging from a tree in Sacramento, California.
Rowena Shaddox has more on the pending animal abuse investigation.
A word of warning to our viewers the images are disturbing.
Last Friday, a kid first spotted the hanging puppy, while walking on the bike path up on the levy close to the 59 hundred block of Riverside Boulevard.
It's a spot that Steven Beard has gone to for the past 12 years twice a day, seven days a week to feed an army of feral cats.
But last Friday, Beard said he saw nothing out of the ordinary.
Learning about the puppy and how she died made him sick.
Investigators need the public's help.
They hope a seven thousand dollar reward will help them make an arrest.
