The Houston SPCA says the dog had multiple tumors and punctures, and her skull was crushed beyond repair.

"Dogs get dumped on the side of the road all the time, unfortunately. The duct tape issue is a rare occurrence... Hopefully, she's got a microchip and trace an owner back to her," said Sgt. Christine Kendrick with Harris County Pct. 1.

Now, police are on the prowl to find whoever did this - a $5,000 reward is being offered for information leading to an arrest.
