Former NFL Coach Helps to Find Dog Killer

Barry Switzer, former Dallas Cowboys and Oklahoma Sooners head coach, has extended his hand to assist an Oklahoma family after their dog, Jetta, was tied to a truck and killed this weekend.

Switzer is offering to match the cash reward to anyone who has information on the person responsible for the death of the 2-year-old Labrador.

Switzer tweeted: "Lab dog was dragged to death in Rogers County. $4500 has been offered for the capture of those responsible. I will match reward. Sorry SOB"

Rogers County Sheriff, Scott Walton told the press that Jetta's legs were tied together with wire and affixed to a vehicle.

"It appeared that wire had led up to maybe the hitch or a bumper of a vehicle and the dog had been drug until it died," he said. "This dog had been drug for over a mile, and there was certainly evidence of that on the roadway."

Thanks to Switzer's generosity, the reward money has now reached $10,000. The Wild Heart Ranch, wildlife rescue and rehabilitation center, is collecting the reward money.

He's a "very nice man, very passionate about finding the person who did this," Wild Heart Ranch founder and director Annette King Tucker said of Switzer. "He and his wife are extremely motivated to do what they can to help."

Switzer tweeted a kind message to the owner of the dog, Melony Patton: "We are heartbroken for your loss of Jetta. This will help find those responsible for such a senseless, horrific crime."
