LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- Officials will use laboratory tests to determine whether an animal found mutilated in southwestern Louisville was a dog or other animal.

Louisville Metro Animal Services and Louisville police are investigating the case, and LMAS manager Margaret Brosko says the Humane Society has offered a $5,000 reward for information that leads to an arrest.

Brosko says the case is among the worst the agency has investigated.

The animal, which was found dead Monday behind a gas station, had multiple body parts removed. Officials first said it was a brown and black German Shepard mix with a distinctive spot on one leg but later decided the type of animal couldn't be determined without lab tests.

Officials say the animal was most likely dumped in the area on Sunday night or Monday morning.
