PETA Offering $5,000 Reward for Information on Torched Dog
ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOX) — An additional $5,000 in reward money is being offered for information leading to an arrest in the case of a dog who died after being set on fire.
It was late last week when Stray Rescue founder Randy Grim was made aware of the 3-year-old terrier-shepherd mix who was set ablaze while he was chained up in the backyard of his owners home in the 4300 block of Cote Brilliante Avenue.
The dog, who rescuers named “Brownie”, died days later of organ failure.
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) is offering an additional $5,000 dollars on top of a reward put up by St. Louis Crimestoppers and Stray Rescue for information in “Brownie’s” death.
St. Louis Police say they do not have a suspect in the case. Anyone with information is asked to call the police animal abuse hotline at 314-771-6121 ext: 232
