SALT LAKE CITY, UT (CNN) -- Haley Savage was shocked to find out a stranger reportedly threw her boxer off an interstate overpass after the dog escaped a fenced-in yard.

CNN affiliate KTVX and Utah Highway patrol report several 911 calls stated a red Ford truck stopped at an overpass, got out of the truck and threw the dog to the interstate below.

An $8,000 reward has been offered for information leading to the arrest of the person who harmed the dog.
