Missing Kapone Has Been Located

Posted By on Tue, Dec 20, 2011 at 2:51 PM


The pit bull whose June disappearance led to animal cruelty charges for a Memphis Animal Services control officer has been located at a home in Senatobia, Mississippi.

An $8,000 reward was offered for tips on how to find Kapone, the 11-year-old pit bull belonging to Cordova resident Brooke Shoup. The tip leading to Kapone's whereabouts came from CrimeStoppers, but the anonymous tipster actually refused the reward money.

Kapone was picked up on June 24th, along with another dog of Shoup's, after escaping her backyard. Animal control officer Demetria Hogan logged both dogs in, but only one made it back to the animal shelter. Hogan was later fired and charged with animal cruelty. A citywide campaign was launched in search of Kapone, and reward money was offered by the Shoup family, the No-Kill Advocacy Center, and People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals.
