Animal Rights Organisation Seeks Public’s Help in Finding Cruel Culprits
Margaret River – People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) is offering a reward of up to $2,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons involved in cruelty to animals in Western Australia.
A mutilated kangaroo was found tied upside down to a tree, with the animal’s head detached and placed on his rear end. In another recent incident, a boar was mutilated and skinned and their skin was draped over a nearby mattress.
Please share this information with your audience in order to help apprehend the person or persons responsible.
“Someone in the area must have seen or heard something related to these horrific incidents. We’re calling on anyone who has information about these callous acts to come forward,” says a PETA spokesperson. “A person capable of deliberately causing such suffering to a helpless animal demonstrates a deeply worrying psychological state and must be found.”
According to law-enforcement agencies and leading mental health professionals, perpetrators of violent and callous acts against animals are often repeat offenders who pose a threat to all animals – including humans.
Anyone with information about this case should contact RSPCA Western Australia by submitting a report here.
