On Wednesday, the Guardians of Rescue, a New York City non profit animal rights and welfare organization, announced a $2,000 reward for information on a pit bull who was found hanged and stabbed multiple times in Lansing, Mich.
The total reward now stands at $2,300 with the Ingham County Animal Shelter offering $300 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the men involved in this heinous animal cruelty case.
According to the Lansing State Journal.com, on Sept. 6, the Ingham County Animal Control states the mortally wounded dog was found on the 1700 block of Illinois Ave when earlier that day several people reportedly witnessed two white males repeatedly stab and then hang the dog.
The dog was euthanized because of his severe injuries.
Once the offer of a reward poster was published on the Guardians of Rescue Facebook page, the outrage of the people posting comments was apparent. There was a stern consensus of opinion how anyone could standby and witness such egregious cruelty without reaching out to authorities or stopping such an unforgivable action. Elizabeth Rose Shaw stated:
"Those who stood by while this dog was murdered are just as guilty as the fiends who killed her. Evil exists when people look away and do nothing! I hope they rot in hell forever."
If found guilty of felony animal cruelty, the culprits face imprisonment, up to a $5,000 fine, and community service.
Please help find these men and bring some justice for a defenseless dog.
If you have any information, please call the Ingham County Tip Line at (517)-676-8376 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Rest in peace sweet dog.
