On Friday, former NFL quarterback Jay Cutler pleaded for help in finding his beloved dog, Bane, who went went missing in the Nashville, TN area.
In February of 2015, Cutler and his ex-wife Kristin Cavallari welcomed Bane, a German Shepherd, into their family. The dog was seen often in her reality TV show, Very Cavallari. In addition, Bane became a regular on Cavallari’s Instagram account.
Cutler and Bane are extremely close, and the dog still lives with him at his Tennessee home. He kept the dog following the couple’s split earlier this year. However, Bane has gone missing and Cutler posted on social media asking for help finding the German Shepherd. The former quarterback is offering a monetary reward for his return, as well.
“Ok Instagram it’s time to do some good today,” Cutler wrote. “Bane is missing. 80lb German shepherd. Last seen on Old Hillsboro in Franklin, TN. $1000 dollar reward for his return. Let’s find him.”
Many others on social media have shared Cutler’s message in hopes of helping him reunite with Bane. Cutler has not shared many details of how the dog went missing. But, hopefully, someone in the Nashville area will find Bane and return him to his owner soon.
Jay Cutler Had Other Issues on His Ranch This Summer
In June, Cutler had some other issues with animals at his ranch home. He owns chickens and a mysterious predator was killing them.
In a series of posts on Instagram, Cutler set out to find what he called the “chicken serial killer.” The former Chicago Bears quarterback even set up camp in a treehouse to keep an eye out for the mysterious predator.
“We’ve got a chicken serial killer on the loose. We’ve lost quite a few,” Cutler said on his Instagram Story. “Tonight, we’re gonna set up a trail camera, see if it’s a coyote, bobcat, I don’t know, raccoon. Could be anything.”
The first night didn’t go to plan since he didn’t capture anything with his trail camera overnight. Yet, he was able to cross his cat off his suspect list.
“While they say, ‘no news is good news,’ in this case we needed news. Didn’t get any news, no pictures on the cam, as expected,” he said. “We’re obviously dealing with a pretty intelligent predator. I think it is safe to say that it is not the cat. So, I think we can take her off the suspect list.”
Although he didn’t get immediate results, the culprit ended up being a raccoon.
