Group Warns That Animal Abusers Pose Serious Threat to Whole Community and Are Likely to Escalate Behaviour Unless Stopped

Ynysybwl, South Wales – PETA is offering a reward of up to £1,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person responsible for reportedly slashing Moe – a partially blind 2-year-old pony – on his face, neck and back. The horrific incident is thought to have taken place on Mill Road between 8 pm on 25 February and 10 am on 26 February.

“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 South Wales Police 101 quoting reference number 1600067019.
