In Defense Of Animals Offers Reward for Information Leading to Arrest and Conviction of Those who Decapitated Goats in San Jose
Three decapitated goats left at entrance to popular park evoke outrage from animal protection organization
San Rafael, Calif. (August 5, 2010) - In Defense of Animals (IDA), an international animal protection organization that operates hands-on rescue facilities in Mississippi, Africa and India, has offered a reward of $2,500 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for the reprehensible be-heading of three goats, whose mutilated bodies were left on display at the entrance to Alum Rock Park in San Jose, California.
A passing jogger made the gruesome discovery early Saturday morning in front of this popular picnic and family activity park. Animal control officers were immediately called to Alum Rock Park due to the suspicious nature of these tragic animal deaths. The case has caused widespread disgust and outrage as well as fear in the surrounding neighborhoods.
Investigation by San Jose Animal Control is underway in order to find those responsible for this heinous act, and to determine the circumstances of the animals’ deaths.
“Animals are not simply put on Earth for humans to use in whatever sick and twisted ways they please. They are sentient, innocent beings who need our protection, care and respect,” said IDA President Scotlund Haisley. “This is a matter of utmost concern, also due to the fact that an indisputable link has been established between criminal animal abuse and violence against humans,” Haisley added.
“IDA is committed to ending animal cruelty wherever we find it. It is our hope that with this $2,500 reward offer, which we encourage other individuals and organizations to add to, someone will come forward who can help authorities find these dangerous, felony animal abusers. We will work with municipal and county agencies in whatever way we can to this end,” said Haisley, a formidable rescuer with over 20 years of cruelty and disaster response experience.
