Yonkers, N.Y. – In an effort to catch the person or persons responsible for bludgeoning 25 cats to death and hanging their bodies in plastic bags from trees in Yonkers, PETA has just put up a billboard at North Broadway and Manor House Square announcing a reward of up to $22,500 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the perpetrator or perpetrators. That total includes donations from PETA and other organizations.
Would you please share this information with your audience? It might be the only way to apprehend those responsible for this heinous act and stop them from killing again. PETA also advises that animals should never be permitted outside unattended.
“Animal abusers are often repeat offenders who often go on to commit acts of violence against humans, another reason why these cat killings should be a cause for alarm for the entire community,” says PETA Director Martin Mersereau. “Whoever committed these crimes must be taken off the streets, and the size of the reward could mean that that will happen.”
Anyone with information about this case is encouraged to contact the SPCA of Westchester County at 914-941-7797.
