San Juan, Puerto Rico – Over the past several months, at least 11 cats have been poisoned and killed in the Hato Rey area of San Juan—most recently, two during the first week of March. Police have yet to make any arrests in the case. That’s why PETA is offering a reward of up to $2,500 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for these violent crimes.
Would you please consider sharing this information with your audience? It might be the only way to apprehend those responsible for these horrific acts.
“The pain and suffering that these cats experienced is difficult to imagine, and the person responsible must be made to pay for these heinous crimes,” says PETA Director Martin Mersereau. “Animal abusers often go on to commit violent against fellow humans, so until the perpetrator is caught, the entire community is at risk.”
Anyone with information about this case is encouraged to contact the Puerto Rico Police Department at 787-793-1234.
