ASPEN, Colo. (AP) -- Authorities hope multiple rewards will lead to an arrest after a dog's severed head was found in a park.

Eagle County sheriff's officials say it appears a human decapitated the dog, whose head and leg were found Aug. 4 in El Jebel northwest of Aspen. They say an examination by veterinarians suggests the dog might have been about 2 to 3 years old and a breed of miniature pinscher or miniature pinscher mix.

The Aspen Daily News reports the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals and the Eagle Valley Humane Society are offering rewards of $2,500 and $1,500, respectively, for information leading to an arrest and conviction. Crime Stoppers also is offering a $1,000 reward in the case.
