Sergeant Carl Bragg is close to wrapping up the case in of the young puppy that was violently attacked in Blanco in early July. The puppy is doing well, still blind, but doing much better,” Sgt. Bragg said.
The offer of a reward is still there for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those involved in this heinous crime.
The Kendalia Wildlife Rescue and Rehabilitation issued this statement in July to help bring those responsible for this and other acts of animal cruelty to justice:
The reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those who have abused and burned dogs and cats in San Antonio and Blanco in recent weeks has doubled to $2,000, thanks to Wildlife Rescue and Rehabilitation (WRR) of Kendalia, receiving a gift from an anonymous donor who wants to see justice done. With this gift WRR is matching the original $1,000 reward offered by the Animal Defense League.
WRR founder and Executive Director Lynn Cuny praised ADL for offering the reward and said she is matching the amount to try to encourage people to come forward with information that will help stop the abuse of companion animals in our communities.
WRR spearheaded the rescue and treatment of the puppy who had been horribly abused in Blanco by a man who broke into a home and poured detergent down the puppy’s throat and almost killed the tiny, helpless youngster.
Recently ADL rescued two dogs who had been severely burned, a dog who had been hung from a tree and a cat whose tail had been burned.
The staffs of both organizations are appalled by these recent outbreaks of violence inflicted on innocent animals. “We believe the perpetrators are teenage boys or adult males in their twenties. And based on the nature of these crimes it is very likely they have bragged to friends and acquaintances about what they did to those animals.”
“Bottom line,” Cuny added, “someone knows who did this, it is time for those individuals to do the honorable thing and come forward.” “And we hope the $2,000 reward will provide the incentive for them to tell us what they know.”
Those with information on the torture of the puppy in Blanco should call WRR Executive Director Lynn Cuny at 830-336-2725 Ext. 309. WRR will pass any and all information on to the Blanco Police Department which is conducting the investigation.
Those with information on the abuse in San Antonio should call ADL Executive Director Ron Aaron at 210-655-1481 Ext. 111. ADL will pass any and all information on to Animal Care Service’s abuse investigators who work closely with the San Antonio Police Department.
