The executive director of the Elkhart County Humane Society said a firework children threw at a pitbull “literally blew the dog’s face off.”

This happened late Thursday in the 1200 block of South Main Street.

The dog picked up the firework and it exploded, according to Anna Reel. She says an Elkhart city police officer brought it into the Humane Society and they had to put it down because the injuries were so severe.

“This is not uncommon that small minded individuals (adults and children) throw fireworks at animals,” Reel said. “Yesterday as I was walking my dog in a local city park, I witnessed a teenage girl throw a firework at a group of geese.”

An Elkhart Police Department spokesperson said it’s too early in the investigation to comment, but they are working to with animal control to determine if it’s indeed a case of animal abuse. They have not determined who the owner is and have no suspects at this time. ... 0f31a.html
