Skamania County, Wash. – PETA is offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to the arrest and cruelty-to-animals conviction of the person(s) who shot two dogs and abandoned them around May 10.
A good Samaritan reported finding the dogs off Forest Service Road 42, approximately 6.4 miles east of Sunset Falls Campground. The two Rottweilers—a male and a female, approximately 2 to 3 years old—had multiple gunshot wounds. The male had already died, and the female was rushed to an emergency veterinary clinic, where she had to be euthanized because of the extent of her injuries. So far, the Skamania County Sheriff’s Office has no leads in its investigation.
“These dogs were left in agony, bleeding from gunshot wounds, alone in the woods,” says PETA Senior Vice President Lisa Lange. “Whoever tortured them is a danger to the entire community, and PETA joins the sheriff’s office in urging anyone with information about this case to come forward immediately.”
Anyone with information about this case is encouraged to contact the Skamania County Sheriff’s Office at 509-427-9490, extension 0, and reference case #20-03096.
