Amsterdam, N.Y. – Because the injuries he received, either by direct abuse or by being hit by a car and left to die, were so severe, Trooper, who was discovered by an Amsterdam couple in a ditch along Touareuna Road, was euthanized. A veterinarian diagnosed the approximately 6-month-old dog with multiple fractures of the back, legs, and jaw. The couple believe that Trooper was dumped on the side of the road. Police have yet to make any arrests in connection with Trooper’s injuries and death. That’s why PETA is offering up to $2,500 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for this violent crime.
Would you please consider sharing this information with your audience? It might be the only way to apprehend those responsible for this heinous act.
“We’ll never know how much—and for how long—Trooper suffered alone in a ditch with so many broken bones that he couldn’t move,” says PETA Director Martin Mersereau. “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 case is encouraged to contact the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office at 518-853-5500.
