LOVINGTON, N.M. (AP) — Authorities in southeastern New Mexico say two puppies have died after being burned with acid.

Police in the city of Lovington say it’s the third time dogs have been doused with acid since last month and they’re trying to catch whoever is responsible.

Albuquerque TV station KOB reports (http://bit.ly/1BkUL0w ) that two 3-week-old pit bulls were in their yard Monday when someone threw acid on them, killing the dogs.

The incident follows those of last month, when authorities say a Lovington family came home from vacation on July 4 to find their dog burned by acid. A week later, a pit bull was stolen from its home and burned the same way. Both dogs survived.

Crime Stoppers is offering a reward in the case, and community members are helping raise money.
