Pet Yorkie killed in ransacking


A Mason Street Northwest man came home from a camping trip at 11 a.m. Wednesday to find a bedroom ransacked and a pet Yorkshire terrier dog dead from being suspended from a door handle by a bra strap.

The homeowner said the terrier was among other dogs staying in the room while he was gone. His daughter was caring for the dogs, he said.

Sometime between Tuesday morning and Wednesday morning, someone pried open a first-floor living room window, ransacked an upstairs bedroom where the dogs were staying and victimized the dog, which was dead when the homeowner arrived home, he said.
