Dog reportedly dragged to death in Monument

Officials at the Colorado National Monument today are investigating a case in which someone dragged a dog to death this morning up Rim Rock Drive.

Officials say tracks in the snow indicate the dog was walking, running and then dragged beside the side of a vehicle for about three miles before the animal with a rope around its neck was dumped by the first tunnel from the Monument’s west entrance.

The dog was an adult male shepherd mix and was found by Monument employees at about 4:30 a.m.

Monument officials have set up a tip line to report the perpetrator. Anyone with information should call 970-712-2798. Callers will remain anonymous.
