A Green Bay woman said she and a friend came home to a smoky house and found her pet dog dead in a hot oven.

Alex Rouse said that her 5-month-old Pekinese/poodle puppy named Hulk meant everything to her and was always with her.

Police don't know if the dog was dead when someone placed in the oven or if it burned alive, said Capt. Karl Fluery, but cops intend to catch the person who did it.

The case remains under investigation, he said.
