Reward Offered in Wayne Animal Cruelty Case

Posted August 2, 2007

— The Humane Society of the United States is offering a $2,500 reward for information in an animal abuse case in Grantham.

Investigators said someone intentionally poisoned at least five dogs with anti-freeze. Officials said four dogs died and one survived after emergency treatment and hospitalization.

A veterinarian who treated the dogs said all five dogs showed signs of anti-freeze ingestion.

    They were probably intentionally ambiguous so that anyone who does call in claiming to know what happened can be checked out.

    Dying this way is supposed to be exceptionally painful. What a horrible thing for somebody to do intentionally. I agree with Spring: there must be some more known facts that haven't been reported here.

    Gee, I wonder where an ex-neighbor of mine moved to? He was suspected of doing it to a cat in our subdivision. And maybe there were others that I didn't know about.

    I wish these sub-humans would get some anti-freeze themselves!

    Poor, poor dogs! They've done nothing, to anyone! I just don't understand some people. I'm sorry, that should have been MONSTERS!

    It is sad time we live in when in order to convince folks to do the right things there has to be an "offering" of a reward. What ever happened to having a clear heart and conscious and doing the right thing b/c it is the civil and respectful thing to do? Why must everything be brought and sold? Your soul, integrity, truth, convictions? Really, if anyone knows who did this inhumane & criminal act to these animals they need to come forward and fess up. Be a man or woman about it and stop protecting criminals. One day it is the dogs getting poisoned the next we have someone serving antifreeze at their job or in their home.

    The dogs were INTENTIONALLY poisoned. I'm thinking they weren't just stray dogs roaming around the farm. And for the HSUS to be involved....

    Really - was the antifreeze poured into their water dishes inside their fenced-in yard or were they running loose and got into something down the street? Either way, poor pups!

    I think what WRAL was trying to say was, If you WANT to LEARN information you are asked to contact Wayne County animal control at 919-731-1439. Because they surely did not provide any information in this story,lol. Either way, its sad that some people do this, I came home from my families house on X-mas Eve last year and found 3 dead puppies in my yard.. they had been poisoned somewhere with what the Vet said was Anti-freeze. They were not my dogs so I do not know the outcome of that, but I am sure nothing was ever proved, I mean how can ya? If you leave anti-freeze out in the barn and a stray dog gets into it, who really is at fault? a good lawyer would sure drive that home that it was accidently left out..
