WPD: No leads on puppy killer despite reward



WPD investigators have been unsuccessful in locating the person(s) who killed two puppies on Wednesday, February 23, 2011. In response to media coverage, several animal welfare organizations have pledged money for a reward for anyone supplying information that leads to an arrest. Pledges currently total more than $2,000.

WPD officers distributed fliers in the area to advertise the potential reward, but no one has come forward. Current leads have been exhausted. Additional publicity is one of the only resources we have left.

Animal cruelty cases resonate with a large segment of the public, as we saw on blog sites after this story was publicized. There is not much we can offer from a law enforcement perspective, but undoubtedly there are others in the community who would welcome the opportunity to speak (i.e., perhaps Animal Control, several of the contributing animal welfare organizations, veterinarians who see these cases, and so on). If your news organization is interested in following up, please let us know.

Please Respond

Please, someone out there knows something about this horrible crime. Please, please, turn these scumbags in. Whoever would do this would also kill people without even blinking an eye. You can remain anonymous, but please get these scumbags off the streets.

Time for a special task

Time for a special task force to investigate animal torture. Miami-Dade has an animal CSI program why can't we. We need to prosecute these crimes and keep them in a National Database.
If you steal a car you will be prosecuted and have a criminal record- why not make animal torture a Felony in every state?
