STUART, Fla. – Deputies are investigating after a Pitbull puppy died from a skull fracture.

 

Martin County Sheriff's detectives said a Stuart woman had left her dog at the Humane Society of the Treasure Coast last month.

 

Veterinarians said the puppy named Taz was lethargic and non-responsive, but the woman claimed she didn't know what was wrong with him. 

 

Veterinarians began working on the animal, and determined that he had a massive head injury. He had to be euthanized.

 

Detectives are trying to find the woman to interview her.
