When a dog appeared to have been purposely drowned at Mother’s Beach in Marina Del Rey recently, the reported crime sparked outrage and triggered an investigation by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.

The “puppy killer,” residents said, must be brought to justice.

Then, when someone reported that a decapitated dog was floating in the water at the mouth of Ballona Creek, some pet owners began fearing that a serial dog killer was on the loose.

Animal rights groups and the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors responded by offering $20,000 in reward money for information on whomever was responsible for the acts of cruelty.
