Girl receives her dog’s head gift wrapped

By Candice Dehnbostel

A St. Paul 17-year-old opened a gift wrapped box and found her dog’s severed head inside, reported the Pioneer Press.

The Australian shepherd mix named Chevy disappeared about a month before owner Crystal Brown received the box, according to United Press International, so Brown put up fliers and visited an animal shelter in St. Paul looking for the dog.

A reward of up to $2,500 is being offered from the Humane Society of the United States for information leading to an arrest and conviction in the case, reported the Associated Press, along with a "Justice for Chevy Fund" where people can make donations.
