£1,000 Reward (Puppies dumped in frozen canal)


An Animal welfare organisation has offered a £1,000 reward to find whoever dumped four newborn puppies into a frozen Sheffield canal.

From the BBC website:

A £1,000 reward has been put up by an animal rights organisation to help find a person who dumped four newborn puppies on a frozen canal.

The puppies were found in a bin bag weighted down with a paving slab on the canal near Chippingham Street in Sheffield on Sunday.

They survived because the bag did not break through the ice into the water.

The reward is being offered by the charity People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (Peta).

Peta said it was also rushing free educational materials to local schools to help children "recognise the importance of showing compassion and empathy for all beings".

Suzanna Barnard, from Peta, said: "Animal abusers are cowards. They take their issues out on the most defenceless beings available to them."

The RSPCA has called the incident a "horrendous act of cruelty" and appealed for anyone with information to contact them on 0300 1234 999.
