Dog lover places £1,000 reward to catch the killer of five dogs

The RSPCA have appealed for information to help locate the person killed five dogs in Kent. The dogs were found dead on Wouldham Common in January, all on separate occasions by different people, though the cause of death on dogs was very similar. RSPCA officials believe the dogs were purposefully killed by the same person.

Now an anonymous dog lover has put up a £1,000 reward for information leading to the capture of the killer.

Alana Chapman of the RSPCA stated in an appeal:

We would like to know who the dogs belonged to and what is going on here.

We are grateful that someone has come forward to offer a reward for information leading to the conviction of whoever is doing this.

The dogs that were discovered on the Common were two German shepherd puppies, an adult German shepherd, a Jack Russell and a Staffordshire bull terrier.

If the culprit is found they could serve a six month prison sentence and receive a maximum £20,000 fine under the Animal Welfare Act 2006.
