DeKalb County, Ga – Law-enforcement officials are still searching for the person(s) responsible for the death of Lulu, the dog who was discovered buried alive up to her nose in Tucker on the evening of Tuesday, June 6. To help expedite the search, a PETA billboard displaying a photo of Lulu and announcing the combined reward offer of up to $10,500 from PETA and members of the public will circle the Stone Mountain/Tucker area where Lulu was found from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. for five days in a row, beginning this Thursday.

On Saturday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., members of PETA and Georgia Animal Rights and Protection (GARP) will hand out fliers at the intersection of North Hairston Road and Memorial Drive while the billboard circles nearby.

“This dog suffered in terror in the dirt for possibly days before she was finally found, and whoever is responsible is still at large,” says PETA Vice President Colleen O’Brien. “The reward of up to $10,500 for help with nabbing this culprit still stands, and PETA is asking the community to come together to identify this dog, where she came from, and who buried her alive.”

Anyone with information about this case is encouraged to call DeKalb County Animal Services at 404-294-2939.

PETA’s motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to abuse in any way.” For more information, please visit PETA.org.

“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
