On 4th November we posted a report on a lurher that was found shot dead in woodland in Rhonda, Wales.

A £1000 reward has now been offered by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the killer.

The dead lurcher dog

Wales Online reports: “The RSPCA are appealing for information after the grim discovery in Pentre – which came less than a week after a cat was shot with an air rifle and police warned about a gang of youths taking pot-shots at birds.

RSPCA inspector Simon Evans said: “We urgently need more information regarding this incident.”

“I would urge anyone who saw something or heard the sound of gunfire in this area to get in touch with us.”

PETA have offered a reward of up to £1,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the perpetrator.

PETA spokeswoman Suzanne Barnard said: “Animal abusers are cowards. They take out their issues and unhappiness on the most defenceless beings available to them.”

Anyone with information about the shot dog can tell the RSPCA, in confidence, on 0300 1234 999.
