Stolen Moorcroft puppy found near Gillette

(Gillette, Wyo.) A reader reached out to us this week about what they believed was possible dog torture going on in Moorcroft. We spoke with Moorcroft Police Chief Doug Lundborg who confirmed that on March 16th, a resident had let her dogs outside, including her young puppy, and when she let them back in, the puppy was missing. On the 18th, it was found along Highway 51 and was taken to Thunder Basin Veterinary Clinic in Gillette for treatment. According to the Campbell County Sheriff's Office and Moorcroft Police, the dog had a broken neck and had to be put down. Moorcroft Police are actively investigating the case. Thunder Basin Veterinary Clinic would not comment on the situation until the investigation is completed, as they'd like to see the person responsible convicted.
