PETA offers $5,000 reward for info. leading to Sedgwick County dog-abuse arrest
Update Tuesday, March 6:
The animal rights group PETA (People for the Equal Treatment of Animals) is offering a $5,000 reward for anyone who can help identify the person or persons responsible for putting super glue on a dog's eyes and mouth.
The Jack Russell terrier mix was found Feb. 26 on the side of the road in Oaklawn, just south of Wichita in Sedgwick County. The dog could not see, eat nor drink. She's currently receiving veterinary care, but police haven't made an arrest in the case.
"Without a kind person's intervention, this little dog could have been killed by a car or died from dehydration, alone and afraid," PETA Vice President Colleen O'Brien says in a release from the organization. "PETA is asking anyone who knows anything about this dog to come forward immediately so that whoever glued her eyes and mouth shut can be held accountable and stopped from hurting anyone else."
A local animal rescue is asking for the public's help to find the person who super-glued a dog's eyes and mouth.
Beauties and Beasts, Inc. says the dog was found Monday in Oaklawn on the side of the road. She also had bruising on her abdomen.
The rescue says the dog is recovering after being treated at the emergency vet but has no voice.
"This was intentional someone who is capable of harming an innocent little dog is extremely dangerous and will continue this pattern of abuse on helpless victims," said the rescue in a post on its Facebook page.
Beauties and Beasts, Inc. says it's looking to offer a reward for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the person(s) responsible.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the Sedgwick County Animal Control 316-660-7071 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
