Calvert County Animal Control is seeking information related to a possible case of animal cruelty.

The Friends of the Linda L. Kelley Animal Shelter is offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to the identification, arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible.

On Dec. 16, 2019, Animal Control officers responded to the area of the Chesapeake Beach Railway Trail pier for a report of a deceased adult female chocolate Labrador retriever.

The animal was not wearing a collar and did not have a microchip.

Calvert County Animal Control is looking for anyone who may have noticed anything unusual in the hours and days leading up to Dec. 16 near the area of the Chesapeake Beach Railway Trail pier and is seeking information regarding the source of the dog’s injuries or the address where she may have resided.

    Morally inexcusable. There are cameras all around there. It will not be long before they serve a warrant. Im sure the loser came from the low income housing right by boardwalk.
