Reward Grows for Arrest in Garland County Animal Mutilations

FEBRUARY 8, 2006 - Posted at 8:32 a.m. CST

 

HOT SPRINGS, AR - The reward offered for an arrest in a series of animal mutilations in Garland County has grown to $11,000.

The first incident was in November when a cow and three pigs were mutilated.  Other incidents since then involved puppies, cats and a beagle that authorities say was skinned alive. 

Area high school students have worked with the Garland County Sheriff's Department to take pledges for the reward.  The total has reached $11,000 in pledges, mostly from private citizens. 

The group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals joined the effort by offering a separate reward of $2,000.

The sheriff's department says anyone with information about the mutilations should call authorities.
