PETA OFFERS UP TO R50,000 FOR INFORMATION ABOUT PERSON WHO TIED DOG TO TRAIN TRACKS

Group Hopes to Help Make Person or Persons Responsible for Appalling Cruelty Face Legal Consequences

For Immediate Release:
24 May 2018

Daveyton – On May 16, a train conductor made a horrifying discovery: someone had tied a dog to train tracks in the area of Alliance, in Daveyton. The heroic conductor alerted the SPCA right away, and the group was able to rescue the dog, whom they named Max, from what could have been a truly horrific death.

The Benoni SPCA are investigating but have yet to make any arrests in the case, prompting PETA to offer a reward of up to R50,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction on cruelty-to-animals charges of the person or persons responsible for this crime.

Would you please share this information with your audience? Someone may recognise this dog, and it might be the only way to apprehend those responsible for this act.

“A cruel individual tied Max to the train tracks,” says PETA Vice President of International Campaigns Jason Baker. “PETA is calling on anyone who recognises this dog to come forward immediately so that whoever left him for dead can be held accountable and stopped from hurting anyone else.”

Animal abusers are a danger to everyone: they take their issues out on anyone they can overpower, human or non-human, and must be caught before they act again. PETA is appealing to anyone with information about the person or persons responsible for this cruel crime to come forward now so that the perpetrator or perpetrators can be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

Anyone with information about this case is encouraged to call the Benoni SPCA on 011 894 2814/5.
