It's now a team effort.

Several animal agencies, and even a private investigator, are working together to find the person who killed a dog by dragging it behind a vehicle.

Someone found the badly injured pit bull, named Gabriel, back in September, in a Clark County neighborhood.

The dog died as veterinarians tried to save him. We're told he was literally skinned alive.

Since the dog's death, reward money has been raised, thanks to animal interest groups from across the country. That reward now stands at $7,000.

Recently, the private investigator was hired to help find new clues in the case.

"Terrible thing that somebody would do, and I guess the main reason people are coming together is wanting to know the whys of it," Brennan Gilkison, who found the dog after it was dragged, said. "Why would somebody drag a dog down the road, and whose dog was it?"

The Clark County Sheriff's Department is also still investigating this case. So far, no arrests have been made.
