(KSL News) A $1,000 reward is being offered to anyone who can help catch the person who shot and killed a family pet.

The Loertscher family left their 6-year-old Shih Tzu, named Sampson, in their yard when they went to church Sunday.

Sampson slipped out through a hole in the fence.

When the family got home, neighbors told them they'd heard Sampson yelp and found him bleeding.

Police believe Sampson was shot with a pellet gun. The person who shot Sampson could face a charge of animal cruelty.

The Animal Advocacy Alliance of Utah is offering the reward.
