Two Dogs Beheaded

( 4UMF NEWS ) Two Dogs Beheaded:

City Council members Jan Perry and Paul Koretz today announced $20,000 in reward money for information leading to the apprehension and prosecution of whoever dumped two dogs’ heads in a large trash bin in South Los Angeles last week.

A man looking for recyclables behind a CVS store at the intersection of W. Slauson and S. Vermont avenues found the severed heads of a chocolate Labrador retriever mix and a tan German Shepherd on the night of March 20.

Los Angeles Police Department Detective Hector Sanchez, who heads the city’s Animal Cruelty Task Force, said there was no evidence the canines were involved in dog fighting. He said the heads appeared to have been severed with a very sharp object, and the lack of blood in the trash bin suggested the beheadings took place at another location.

Police are reviewing camera footage in the area, Sanchez said.

Koretz, who chairs the City Council Personnel and Animal Welfare Committee, said, “This despicable act is not only tragic and inhumane, but also displays a violent and vindictive viciousness that is often associated with perpetrators who are a threat to animals and people alike. This could be the act of a murderer in training.”

City Attorney Carmen Trutanich said the perpetrator would likely be prosecuted as a felony by the District Attorney’s Office.

Prosecutor Deborah A. Knaan, the district attorney’s Animal Cruelty Case Coordinator, said the maximum penalty for whoever is behind the beheadings would be three years if the animals were already dead when the heads were removed, or four years if a weapon was involved to kill the dogs.
The reward total includes $10,000 from the city — unanimously approved by the City Council — and $2,500 each from the Humane Society, the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals and Best Friends Animal Society. Koretz said he would also contribute $2,500 of his own money.

Anyone with information about the beheadings was urged to call the LAPD Animal Cruelty Task Force at (213) 486-0450.
