FRANKFORT, N.Y. -- Officials in the town of Frankfort are asking for your help in locating two men who they believe are responsible for the death of a pit bull.

NewsChannel 2 did receive pictures, but they are too graphic to be shown.

Police say they got a report of a dead dog near an old landfill on Southside Road in Frankfort.

They then found the black pitbull in a crate, who was believed to be three to four years old.

They say the dog died from malnutrition and animal fighting. The dog was heavily scarred, had a full tail and cropped ears.

Police are looking for two men who left the scene right before they got there. They say the two were seen in a black or dark blue, two-door Dodge pickup truck in the area acting suspicious.

One of the males was described as having a full beard.

A $1,000 reward is now offered for information leading to an arrest in this case.

"Cuse Pit Crew" is a group that advocates for the pit bull breed.

In addition to offering money, the group is commending the Frankfort Police Department for its dedication to the case. They're encouraging anyone with information to call them at 315-894-3594 or send an email to police.
