Piney Green, N.C. – A duck was found beaten and stabbed to death with a pencil on Rocky Run Road on March 6. The bird, who Piney Green–area residents say was friendly, is the latest victim in a number of attacks on ducks in the area. Police have yet to make any arrests in connection with the violent incident, so PETA is offering a reward of up to $2,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the culprit or culprits.
Would you please consider sharing this information with your audience? It may be the only way to apprehend those responsible for this heinous act.
“Not only is stabbing an animal to death egregiously cruel, it’s also against the law,” says PETA Director Martin Mersereau. “PETA is urging anyone with information about the violent act against this sensitive, gentle animal to come forward now, before anyone else gets hurt.”
PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to abuse in any way”—offers tips for helping wildlife and reporting cruelty to animals on its website.
Anyone with information about this case is encouraged to contact the Onslow County Sheriff’s Office at 910-455-3113.
