£10K REWARD OFFERED TO HELP NAB SICKO WHO DUMPED DOG AFTER BREAKING EVERY BONE IN HIS BODY
Group Warns That Animal Abusers Are a Serious Threat to Whole Community and Likely to Escalate Behaviour Unless Stopped
Prenton, Merseyside – PETA is offering a reward of up to £10,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person responsible for abandoning a small dog in Birkenhead cemetery with an extensive list of injuries both old and new. The dog, fondly named Elmo by veterinary staff, was found on 23 January, with almost every bone in his body broken over the course of several years. The severities of his injuries were so extreme that Elmo was later humanely euthanised.
PETA warns that the perpetrator may be inflicting prolonged torture on other animals right now. Would you please share this information with your audience to help apprehend the person responsible for this cruel act and prevent further animals from having to endure Elmo’s fate?
“It’s imperative that any community faced with a sadistic and violent act like this take measures to find the culprits and bring them to justice”, says PETA Associate Director Elisa Allen. “Animal abusers are a danger to everyone: they take their issues out on whomever is available to them – human or non-human – and must be caught before they act again.”
History shows that past incidents involving cruelty to animals regularly appear in the records of serial rapists and murderers. Young killers Mary Bell, Robert Thompson and Jon Venables – as well as serial murderers Ian Brady, Thomas Hamilton (the Dunblane school massacre), Ian Huntley, Raoul Moat, Dennis Nilsen and Fred West – all started out by deliberately harming animals.
Anyone with information about this case is encouraged to contact the RSPCA on 0300 123 8018.
