Update! PETA Offers $5,000 Reward In Savage Attack Of Florida Alligator

TC Palm

PETA has announced a reward of up to $5,000 to anyone with information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or people responsible for the heinous attack of an alligator earlier this month in Florida.

“This alligator suffered hideously in an attack in which the eyes were gouged out, and the back was cut open while the animal was still alive,” described PETA Senior Vice President Lisa Lange. “PETA urges anyone with information about this case to come forward immediately so that this animal torturer can be held accountable.”

Tragically, the 4 foot alligator had to be euthanized due to the severity of the injuries.

The Palm Beach Post reported that the brutal assault attack transpired May 15th near a Del Monte Foods store in Indiantown Florida.

The store was also vandalized leaving the Martin County Sheriff’s Office to believe both crimes are committed by the same person or people.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Martin County Sheriff’s Office at 772-220-7170 or Treasure Coast Crime Stoppers at 1-800-273-TIPS (8477).

You can help all animals and our planet by choosing compassion on your plate and in your glass. #GoVeg
