PETA has offered a reward for information about decapitated animals found recently near light rail tracks on 26th Avenue in Sacramento.
The latest incident was Saturday when police found a bag containing a dead goat, rat, and catfish and another bag of dead chickens.
PETA says its reward of $5,000 is for information leading to the arrest and conviction of whoever is responsible.
Anyone with information about this case should contact Gina Knepp of Sacramento Animal Care Services at the Front Street Animal Shelter at 916-808-8333.
There have been about a dozen reports of people finding mutilated animals in the region since January. These discoveries include decapitated goats, birds and cows, in remote areas and along light rail tracks.
