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

Wolverhampton, West Midlands – PETA is offering a reward of up to £2,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person(s) responsible for killing two cats in Newbridge Crescent. The severely injured bodies of the two felines were found mere metres from each other on Monday, 10 October. According to reports, both cats were tied up by the legs and one of them also had a cable tied around her neck and had endured severe trauma to her face and mouth, as though she had been hit with force or run over.

Would you please share this information with your audience to help apprehend those responsible for this cruel act?


PETA is urging residents to keep a watchful eye on their animal companions and to keep them indoors. Because animals cannot report incidents of abuse against them and can do little to fight back, they are the perfect “practice” victims for violent people.

“It’s imperative that any community faced with a cruel and callous act such as this take measures to find the culprit and bring him or her to justice”, says PETA Director Elisa Allen. “Animal abusers are a danger to everyone – they take their issues out on whoever 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 Huntley, Thomas Hamilton (the Dunblane massacre), Fred West, Dennis Nilsen, Ian Brady, and Raoul Moat all started out by deliberately harming animals
