Orange, Conn. -- The body of a very thin pit bull was found on March 20 inside a trash bag that was hanging from a tree branch at the Wilbur Cross Parkway rest area near Exit 56 (northbound). She appeared to be between 1 and 2 years old and had a black coat with some white markings on her chest. The bag also contained bloody clothing, needles, and syringes, and the animal bore puncture wounds, which suggest that she may have been used in dogfighting. A veterinarian estimated that she may have been dead for a day or two. Police have yet to make any arrests in connection with the killing of this dog. That is why PETA is offering up to $2,500 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for this violent crime.
PETA believes that other animals in the area--and even human residents--might be in danger as long as those responsible for this crime are at large. The group is urging residents not to leave animals outside unattended. "Animal abusers are cowards," says PETA Director Martin Mersereau. "They take their issues out on the most defenseless beings available to them. Area 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 District Animal Control at 203-389-5991. For more information, please visit PETA's Web site HelpingAnimals.com.
