February 17, 2004

FORT WORTH, Texas -- Construction crews in downtown Fort Worth found the body of a skinned dog discarded near the former Bank One tower when they arrived for to work Tuesday morning.

Workers called police after the dog was found underneath a crane.

Investigators said the act was intentional. No other evidence was found at the scene.

Police said the dog was skinned at another location and purposely left in a high-traffic area.

"Somebody who was not right in their mind [did that]. We had a dog that was burned because the guy no longer wanted it ... and he set it on fire ... unfortunately this one wasn't able to be rescued," Humane Society investigator Lisa Guerrero said.

Investigators said the dog was probably a greyhound, possibly 1 to 2 years old.
