An animal rights group is offering $5,000 to find an animal killer in
suburban Palm Beach County.
Two weeks ago, an opossum was found impaled by an arrow in the Harbor Cove
Development near Lake Worth Road and U.S. 441, said Palm Beach County
Animal Control Sgt. Tammie Crawford. The next week, a Muscovy duck was
shot with an arrow underneath its wings, as if it was in flight, Crawford
said. The duck was found on Teal Court in Royal Palm Beach, near
Okeechobee Boulevard and Wildcat Way.
"This person is obviously depraved and is in need of some guidance in
life," said Heather Lischin of the Animal Rights Foundation of Florida.
"Horrible acts of cruelty against animals are just the beginning. It's
well established that these cruel acts can escalate into violence against
The foundation is offering $5,000 for information leading to the arrest
and conviction of the person or persons responsible for the crimes. Anyone
with information can call Crawford at 233-1211 or Crime Stoppers at (800)
