Aliquippa, Pa. – On Monday, 20 dead dogs in varying states of decay were found spread across a hillside in Aliquippa—a harrowing find that follows two additional cases occurring earlier in the month in which deceased dogs were dumped in Butler County. PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to abuse in any way”—is hot on the case, offering a reward of up to $2,500 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for this crime. The Beaver County Humane Society is also offering $500.
“Anybody who is capable of killing and throwing away these defenseless dogs is a danger to all living beings and must be held accountable for their crimes,” says PETA Senior Director Martin Mersereau. “PETA is urging anyone with any information to come forward immediately, before someone else is hurt.”
Anyone with information about this case is encouraged to contact Hopewell Township Police Department at 724-378-0557.
