Group Wants to Find Those Responsible for Mass Killing of Shorebirds in Cruel Vehicle Attack
For Immediate Release:December 31, 2012

Long Beach, Wash. -- Last
Thursday, 92 dunlins were reportedly found dead with traumatic
injuries—including torn wings—after a vehicle apparently plowed through the
flock of shorebirds at a speed well above the beach's 25-mph speed limit. PETA
is now offering up to $5,000 for information leading to the arrest and
conviction of the person or persons responsible for these animals' deaths.
This reward comes in addition to the $500 reward offered by the Wildlife Center
of the North Coast.
Dunlins—who are impressive fliers, able to reach speeds of
110 mph, and conscientious parents, mating in monogamous pairs and sharing
incubation and caretaking duties—are protected under Washington state law.
"This senseless attack on these gentle birds isn't just
vicious and cruel—it's also against state and federal wildlife protection and
anti-cruelty laws," says PETA Vice President Daphna Nachminovitch.
"Long Beach residents have good cause 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 incident is encouraged to contact PETA at 757-622-7382 or Sgt. Dan Chadwick of the Washington Department of Fish &
Wildlife at 360-581-3337 immediately.

Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
