Niagara Falls Police are teaming with the New York State Humane Association in searching for the killer of a puppy.

A pit bull that was seriously injured by its owner could remain the property of that owner.

The 2-year-old pup was dragged behind Daniel Delaney's truck when he forgot that he had  leashed the dog to the bumper. Delaney remains in custody and is seeking a court injunction to retain possession of the dog.

The SPCA in Erie County is caring for the dog and is pursuing ownership in the case.
