£1,000 reward to find who hanged dog in cruel act
Campaigners offered a £1,000 reward yesterday for information about the “deliberate” hanging of a dog.
Police were called when the lurcher was discovered by a group of horse riders at a property in Haselbury Plucknett, Somerset.
It is though the dog was “killed deliberately in a cruel act” and officers have appealed for anyone who may have been in the area to come forward.
People for the Ethical Treatement of Animals (PETA) offered a £1,000 reward for information that leads to the conviction of the person responsible for the sick act.
