A huge reward, recently climbing to $10,000, is being offered for information leading to the identification, arrest, and conviction of a woman who was spotted on video viciously beating a small, white dog.
The disturbing incident took place in Atlanta, Georgia, at the Landing Square apartments on Greenbriar Parkway S.W. on December 16. Ring doorbell video footage shows the woman taking off a shoe and beating the dog, who can be heard crying in pain.
When the woman finishes beating the dog, she picks it up and walks away. The authorities have questioned staff at the apartment complex, but nobody was able to identify the woman in the video. The police are hopeful that a member of the public will have a tip to lead them to the suspect’s identity.
Anyone who knows something about this situation is asked to submit their tips anonymously to the Crime Stoppers Atlanta tip line at 404-577-TIPS (8477) or online at www.crimestoppersatlanta.org. People do not have to give their name or any identifying information to be eligible for the reward of up to $5,000.
PETA is offering an additional $5,000 to the reward fund. PETA Senior Vice President Colleen O’Brien said:
“If this little dog is still in this violent person’s hands, he or she is possibly experiencing the terror and pain of similar beatings regularly. This dog needs to be separated from the abuser immediately, and PETA urges anyone with answers to come forward.”
