The ASPCA is offering a $1,500 reward for information leading to an arrest in a shocking cruelty case in Kinston, North Carolina, involving rabbits. The victims were allegedly skinned alive, and one was also decapitated. This reward is in addition to the $1,000 currently being offered ($500 by the Lenoir County SPCA and $500 by a private donor).

“This is an unconscionable case of violent abuse that was committed with an extremely high level of depravity,” says Stacy Wolf, Senior VP of the ASPCA’s Anti-Cruelty Group. “While our ultimate hope is that these types of heinous acts never occur, we hope that the rewards being offered serve as a message that cruelty toward animals will not be tolerated in our society. We thank the Lenoir County SPCA and local authorities for their commitment to finding justice for these two innocent rabbits.”

Anyone with information on this case is asked to call the Kinston Public Safety Tips Line at (252) 939-4020.

And all the criticism on how big he is… well now he’s fighting a guy who’s just as big as him, and has great stand up, has the reach, the leg reach, all the things that people have said that Jones always has over his opponents, this guy’s gonna have too. Which makes it very interesting…”
