Another Horrific Case of Animal Cruelty In The South

This Story Contains Graphic Content –

Another ugly case of animal cruelty has surfaced in the south.

Eight little puppies have been discovered dead with their throats cut last week.

The ghastly discovery was made by Invercargill woman Kim Durry last Friday.

Mrs Durry and her husband Errol were walking their dogs near Sandy Point when they came across the bodies of the pups.

Kim Durry says “no attempt had been made to cover the bodies so they covered them over as best they could then alerted animal protection agency Furever Homes who took the bodies away.”

The area where they were found was a popular area for walkers and cyclists .

She says “we came across the ugly find about 4.30 last Friday afternoon so they had probably not been dead that long.”

The pups are thought to be a pig dog type breed.

Mrs Durry says “it’s quite possible someone may have seen suspicious activity or a vehicle in that area of Sandy Point Road.”

She says Furever Homes were alerted as she has no faith in the SPCA.

Kim Durry says “there is not enough protection for our animals and it’s free to ask for help. There are agencies that take care of unwanted pets and animals”

She wonders is the mother being looked after properly now that her pups have gone.

In a statement Furever Homes chair Donna Hawkins Keil says this is one of the most horrific cases we have seen yet.

Donna Hawkins Keil says a report has been lodged with Police.

She says we are seeing more of this level of abuse, from kittens being stoned to death, Lou with the arrow through her head and now decapitated pups, these are serious crimes which should be a police matter, animal abusers are not scared, as there are no consequences.

Donna Hawkins Keil said and this form of abuse should not be left to a charity to prosecute.

Anyone who may have seen activity related to this is encouraged to reach out to Police.

Animal rescue agency Paw Justice are offering $2000 rewards for information leading to the successful prosecution for this inhumane act.
