The Humane Society of Utah (HSU) is offering a $3000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for the death of a stallion found on public lands.
The 14-year-old palomino stallion was found dead from a small caliber gunshot wound west of Delta, Utah, by specialists from the Bureau of Land Management Utah Fillmore Field Office.
The HSU hopes the reward will assist BLM Law Enforcement in obtaining information required to identify and charge whoever is responsible for this act.
“The Humane Society of Utah is dedicated to the elimination of pain, fear and suffering in all animals, and that includes finding justice for those who are needlessly killed,” said Gene Baierschmidt, HSU executive director.
“Our mission includes teaching respect and humane treatment of animals. We cannot condone these acts of violence.”
The HSU conducts its own cruelty investigations of animal abuse and neglect around the state and promotes legislation and ordinances that will enhance the welfare of animals in Utah.
Anyone with information is urged to contact BLM Law Enforcement at 801-539-4082 or John Fox, HSU animal cruelty investigator, at 801-261-2919 ext. 210. Tips can remain anonymous.
