The Lehigh County Humane Society on Sunday confirmed that a bag of 11 skinned, dead puppies was found in a park in Lower Macungie Township, Pennsylvania.

State Police initially said that the puppies had been found on Friday dead and shaved, but The Morning Call later reported that the animals had been “skinned to the bone.”

In a Saturday Facebook post, the Lehigh Valley Pitbull Awareness Club said it would offer a $100 reward for information leading to an arrest in the case. By Sunday, the reward had grown to $600 “thanks to anonymous donations.”

Anyone with information about the crime has been encouraged to call State Police at 610-395-1438. People wishing to pledge reward money can contact the Lehigh Valley Pitbull Awareness Club on their Facebook page, at lvpitbullclub@gmail.com or by calling 484-764-7779.

WFMZ-TV speculated that there could be a “serial animal torturer on the loose” because another puppy was found skinned and cooked in Lehigh County earlier this month.
