Reward increased for info on slaying of small town's police dog

  • Follow Latest News

BARNESVILLE, Ga. — The Atlanta Humane Society has added $5,000 to the reward offered for information leading to the arrest of the person who shot and killed a Griffin Police Department German shepherd.

The dog, called Jimi, was taken Monday from the kennel at the Lamar County home of his handler, Griffin police Cpl. Chad Moxon. The dog's body was found along a road near Yatesville Wednesday. Moxon says his other dog was found alive but badly beaten.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that Moxon and his family had already offered a $1,000 reward, so the total reward is now $6,000.

Jimi was trained to detect drugs and explosives and track people.

The Lamar County Sheriff's Office is investigating.

Whoever did this deserves the death penalty. I'll be glad to pull the trigger. If you will kill a dog you will kill a person.

sometimes i feel killing an innocent dog or cat is worse than killing a human... so i would certainly believe someone capable of doing this is liable to do worse. i hope they catch this bottom-dweller.
