GERING, Neb. (AP) - Several rewards have been offered to help authorities find whoever mutilated Ike, a 3-year-old German shepherd that lived in Gering.

1 of the dog's owners, Christopher Henderson, reported to police that Ike had been partially skinned from its belly to its genitals. Henderson says the dog was euthanized on Sept. 15 after it crawled home the night before.

Scotts Bluff County Sheriff Mark Overman says a $2,500 reward has been offered by the Humane Society of the United States. Overman says the case is still being investigated.

Henderson's mother, Sharon, says she's received pledges for another $2,500 reward from an organization called In Defense of Animals. She says rewards of $1,000 and $500 have been promised as well, plus individuals have enriched the reward fund by $100 more.
