The Galveston County Daily News is reporting that a West End woman's mixed-breed Lab was found stabbed to death earlier this week.
Buddy was in a ditch, stabbed five times.
[Lt. Joel] Caldwell, commander of the Galveston Police Department's Animal Services Unit, has taught courses on animal cruelty statewide. He hasn't seen many dog stabbing cases.
"It's pretty rare," Caldwell said. "I've seen them shot, burned, but it's pretty weird to find one stabbed."

Authorities say an investigation is ongoing.
