A Houston family were devastated to find their puppy dead inside the barbeque grill in their backyard.
Cecelia Resendez and Jesse Sosa made the gruesome discovery on Sunday. Their dog Gema was an eight-month-old Pit Bull.
The owners believe that someone attacked and killed the canine in their garden while they were out visiting family.
1. Gema was an eight-month-old Pit Bull puppy. Her owners said someone attacked her in their backyard while they were visiting family.
2. Cecelia Resendez, left, and Jesse Sosa, right, quickly realized something was wrong when they came home and didn’t hear the dog. They looked outside and saw their pet’s legs sticking out from the grill.
Cecelia told Click2Houston.com:
I got her when she was a puppy and I’ve raised her. If they can do that to a dog, imagine what they could do to a kid. If it’s a kid doing that, they need help.
The family realized that something was wrong after getting back home and noticed that their usually playful puppy did not come to greet them.
The couple then saw Gema’s legs sticking out from the grill.
3. One investigator thinks the dog may have been hit by a car and then shoved into the grill.
There are several theories to explain how the pet met her untimely death. The canine did not seem to be burned, but officers said Gema had several scratches and wounds to her legs and head.
One of the detectives thinks the puppy may have been hit by a car and then put into the grill, but her death is still under investigation. Owner Jesse Sosa said:
It’s still confusing to me. They had to try really hard because she was big for a puppy but she wasn’t aggressive at all. All the kids come and want to play with her.
Officers told the family that it would be hard to find out who did this, because there were no security cameras and the neighbors said they didn’t hear or see anything.
