Puppy horror: Could chemically burned Chihuahua-mix’s fate be connected to other targeted dogs?
A puppy that was severely burned by a chemical was turned over to officials at a city animal shelter in Lincoln Heights Thursday.
A good Samaritan found the 5- or 6-month-old Chihuahua mix somewhere in the 90033 ZIP code, which includes parts of downtown Los Angeles and Boyle Heights, and turned it in about 11:35 p.m. to the North Central Shelter at 3201 Lacy St., Los Angeles Animal Services General Manager Brenda Barnette said.
Other dogs have suffered chemical burns in the Antelope Valley and in September, the county Board of Supervisors approved a $25,000 reward for information leading to whoever harmed the animals.
In Thursday’s case, the puppy suffered chemical burns to most of its body and face and is now in a full body wrap, Barnette said.
This makes at least nine dogs that have been brought to Antelope Valley shelters with similar burns in the past two months.
Taco is the ninth dog known to have suffered such a brutal attack in recent weeks.
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.

Whoever did this, if not locked up, will kill a person someday. Animals can be brutal, but humans can be mean.
I'm thinking this might be ONE sicko running aroung the Antelope Valley. The High Desert is a place that sex offenders live en masse. Not much out there but dirt and perverts. The sex offenders can't live anywhere around parks/ schools/ etc., so after their release from jail/prison this is where they go. These sex offenders are even cutting off their ankle bracelets and going off the radar.
I am leaning to a single perp torturing these dogs. The High Desert is full of creepy sickos and I fear this prick will switch over to humans any time now. It's like seeing the making of a serial killer in the process. What kind of sick mofo gets his kicks torturing dogs. WTF?
This F has no soul. Whatever happened in his/her life, does not matter, IMO. This is sadistic.
vigilante the hell out of the this monster if I ever caught them.
Some of those missing were recently released from jail or prison, while others disappeared years ago.
"Several of them have cut off their ankle bracelets or let their batteries expire or they never checked in with their parole officer after being released," said Sgt. Kevin Turrill with the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.
Authorities say the offenders have violated the conditions of their parole. They warn the public that these men are wanted dangerous criminals.
"These are sex offenders. They need to be aware of them, watch their children, keep their children close to them," Turrill said.
