Wichita, Kansas (KSNW) —The Holcomb family recently reunited with their dog after more than a month. The owner claims that someone put the dog in a hole and killed it. Police are currently investigating.
Tristen Keltner said her dog disappeared in April. She promised her 14-year-old daughter to do everything to bring him back to her home. Now that he’s home, she and the police officer ask a lot of questions.
“This is the best day we’ve had for a long time,” Kertner said. “It’s about as good as the day I had my child.”
Keltner is delighted to find the dog Thor, who has been missing for 40 days.
“He has great implications for us,” Kertner said. “My daughter sleeps with him every night. If he isn’t there, she won’t sleep.”
Kertner says Great Dane disappeared on April 3rd. Then, after she searched the neighborhood for hours every day, police called her and said she had found her pet.
“He said someone seemed to push him into the hole,” Keltner said. He said there was no way for Thor to get there on his own. ”
Keltner said that when Thor returned home, it was nothing but skin and bones.
“They said that the liver and kidneys could have been slightly swollen because they worked hard to break down fat and muscle to survive,” Keltner said.
She said she couldn’t imagine why everyone treats dogs this way.
“I know every day that there are animals hungry for holes that have no food or water because of what I did. I couldn’t even understand that,” Kertner said.
Holcomb police told KSN News that the case was still under investigation and the suspect had not been identified.
“It was, to be honest, a kind of tragic thing,” said Mason Seeley, a Holcomb police officer. “We are always looking at horrible things, but this is what surprised me.”
Keltner would like to thank everyone who helped with the search to bring Thor home.
“Millions of thanks will never be enough,” Kertner said. “You don’t know what you did for my daughter and me. It was a gift that could bring him home.”
