Now Los Angeles County Supervisor Michael Antonovich is going to lobby the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors for a $25,000 reward for the conviction of the perp(s).

Taco is being cared for at the same animal hospital as Chrissie, a pit bull who was also burned. She's recovering but officials don't know what caused her injuries.
"We have done a skin biopsy on Chrissie," said Beth Newhill, an animal rescuer. "All they could tell us was a caustic chemical burn."
The animal rescuers fear one or more disturbed individuals are responsible for torturing the dogs.
Los Angeles County Sheriff's investigators are trying to determine whether the dogs were maliciously hurt or whether their wounds could have been caused by something in the environment.
They're not sure all the cases are connected since the dogs have been found over a wide area.
Taco was rescued in San Bernadino County, 60 miles from the Antelope Valley.
A reward being offered for information leading to whoever has been burning dogs with caustic chemicals in the Antelope Valley jumped to $50,000 Tuesday, thanks to a $25,000 private donation announced by Los Angeles County officials.
