Locust Grove, Ga. – A 6-year-old dog named Girl was found with a switchblade embedded in her face in the backyard of a Locust Grove home. After being rushed to a veterinarian and undergoing two surgeries, Girl is recovering from the attack, which took place sometime on the morning of February 4. Police have yet to make any arrests in the case. That’s why PETA is offering up to a $5,000 reward 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.
“Animal abusers are cowards,” says PETA Director Martin Mersereau. “They take their issues out on the most defenseless beings available to them. Area residents have good reason to be concerned. 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 Locust Grove Police Dept at 770-957-7055.
