Penitas, Texas – Twelve dogs were recently found dead in the area of Mile 3 and Liberty roads in Penitas. According to police, they were poisoned. Police have yet to make any arrests in connection with the killings. That’s why PETA is offering up to a $2,500 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for this violent crime. Would you please consider sharing this information with your audience? It might be the only way to apprehend those responsible for this heinous act.

“Animal abusers are cowards,” says PETA Director Martin Mersereau. “They take their issues out on the most defenseless beings available to them. Hidalgo County residents have good reason to be concerned. According to law-enforcement agencies and leading mental-health professionals, perpetrators of violent acts against animals are often repeat offenders who pose a serious threat to all animals—including humans.”

Anyone with information about this case is encouraged to contact the Penitas Police Department at 956-583-0050.
