Reward for Info on Ocean Beach Puppy Stabber Increased

Posted By on Fri, Aug 1, 2008 at 1:35 PM


The reward for information leading to the arrest of the person who stabbed a puppy at Ocean Beach has been raised today from $2,000 to $5,000 via an anonymous donor.

In case you haven't been following this story, it's pretty awful. A volunteer with Grateful Dogs Rescue was walking a young pitbull named Pogo on Ocean Beach July 22 when he disappeared. Pogo was found Tuesday morning stabbed to death.

Well, the Snitch loves puppys. And hates puppy stabbers and thus we urge you to call (415) 554-9400 with any tips you might have.

One has trouble imagining what kind of person might stab a puppy, but I am inclined to picture them twirling an oversized mustache, so cartoonishly evil is this crime.

And note to commenters on the Chron article- this money is not being proffered by the city, it's coming from Grateful Dogs Rescue and The Friends of SF Animal Care & Control in addition to the anonymous donor.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
