The Pennsylvania Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) is offering a $2,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the culprits responsible for the death of six pit bull type dogs found dead and left in three black trash bags in South Philadelphia last week.
Officials from the SPCA Humane Law Enforcement unit were called to the corner of 26th St. and Washington Ave., when during a routine cleanup, maintenance workers found the bodies of the dogs. The dogs had all died within 24 hours of their discovery and had severe wounds and injuries.
A necropsy has been ordered, however authorities think the dogs had been used in an illegal dog fighting operation.
If you have any information about this tragedy, please call the SPCA Anti-Cruelty hotline at (866)-601-SPCA.
Please be the voice for these innocent dogs who probably lived horrible lives and died in pain and agony. Report any suspicions of dog fighting.
