DECATUR — The Macon County Sheriff's Office is looking for Dalton C. Skinner, a 21-year-old man charged with aggravated cruelty to an animal. 

The sheriff's office in a post on its Facebook page asked for anyone with information about Skinner's whereabouts to contact Decatur/Macon County Area Crimestoppers at (217) 423-8477. Anyone who provides information leading to his arrest could be eligible for a cash reward of up to $1,000.

Skinner pleaded not guilty to the charge in April. Police said he beat his dog and left it urine soaked and lying in a bathtub stained with the animal’s blood. The dog was removed for professional medical help and was said in April to be in recovery.
