AtlantaWhat:    Members of the local Boy Scout Troop and Pack 1833, as well as Troop 70, will distribute hundreds of fliers in and around the Stonecrest Mall on Saturday in an effort to identify the criminal in the case of Lulu, the dog who died after being buried up to her nose near an ATV trail in Tucker.

The media are invited to meet up with the Boy Scouts as they canvass the area. PETA and Boy Scouts spokespeople are available for interviews.

When:    Saturday, July 15, beginning at 9 a.m.

Where:    Stonecrest Mall, 2929 Turner Hill Rd. (between the outside

                    entrances to Macy’s and JCPenney), Lithonia

“Someone must recognize this dog, and the whole community is counting on that person to come forward before anyone else gets hurt,” says PETA Vice President Colleen O’Brien. “These Boy Scouts have made a promise to help save other dogs from Lulu’s fate, and PETA stands alongside them in doing everything possible to bring this dog’s abuser to justice.”

PETA, whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to abuse in any way,” has offered a $10,000 reward (plus $500 from a member of the public) and turned the fliers into printable posters, available here, so that they can be posted in public spaces. The DeKalb County Fire Rescue Department, Georgia Animal Rights and Protection, and other members of the community have passed out over 20,000 fliers in what has become a massive shared mission to nab the perpetrator.

“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
